Bill The Power Goodall Triumphant

Bill "The Power" Goodall

There has been a continuing sporting theme this year. Probably something to do with our new influx of young members. But it seems to have refreshed us all.

The latest example was a Darts knock out match held at The Alcester Inn last week. Killer was the game and a large opening group was quickly reduced to a handful. Chief among those was eventual winner, Bill Goodall, seen here being congratulated by organiser, Graham Roden and brandishing his newly flighted darts.

Our thanks to all the team and customers of the Alcester Inn for the delicious meals and their help and consideration in organising the event. We are most grateful.

We Go Motor Racing!!!

Prescott Hill Climb

A number of the guys attended what is becoming quite a regular event for us. And with good reason because Prescott Hill Climb never fails to give us a great day out watching the racing and pretending we know all about vintage cars.

In addition, one of our members, who really does know about vintage cars, operates a charity, Miles for Smiles which works among terminally ill children offering them a drive in the hot car of their choice.  He was working at Prescott while we were there helping some wonderfully brave young people.

Our Very Own Scarecrow

Our Very Own Scarecrow

Our very own 41er, David Haggerty, decided to enter the Oversley Green Scarecrow competition recently.  He decided on a theme, that of Covid and found all the PPE needed, even a cotton bud to root about up someone's nose.  Ever mindful of the weather he even found a brolly.  Really excellent don't you think.  Quite how he stood in his front garden all weekend without moving is anyones' guess though.

A Fond Farewell to Ted Jarvis

Ted Jarvis

Edward Jarvis 1938 – 2020

It is with huge sadness that Alcester 41 Club announce the passing of Ted Jarvis after a short illness. Ted, who through his many years as a member of Alcester Round Table and more latterly, 41 Club, has been one of our more charismatic colleagues.

Born in Rubery, Ted’s profession as a funeral director had come to him via a spell in the motor trade. But his ability to change from hilarity to sympathy when receiving a call from “the bereaved” during a Table meeting was legendary. A lifelong horse lover, Ted divided his time between his passion for hunting, Tabling and his business. But he could always be relied upon to turn up and help at events, his broad smile engaging everyone around him.

Ted’s positivity and enthusiasm will long be missed by his friends and colleagues in Alcester Table and 41 Club.
