Enjoying Planned Retirement, a seniors’ group based at the North Ringwood Senior Citizens Hall holds fortnightly bocci competitions between December and April each year.
Bocci is one of the many social events organised by the group to provide a range of activities for its members. This afternoon I attended their bocci competition to speak to members of the club and to partake in the event.
I also received an update on EPR’s recently stolen barbecue and the group is proceeding to finalise insurance details so it can be replaced. It is a shame that a group that encourages social inclusion and provides a wide range of activities to encourage active lifestyles should fall victim to theft.
I was fortunate to be partnered with a fairly strong bocci player and we made it into the semi-finals during this afternoon’s tournament. EPR has an emphasis on fun, friendship and entertainment and this shines through at each of the groups’ events.
