Social Clubs

The Club has a number of different clubs, teams, societies and associations who use the facilities.

Petanque Club

Bancroft Park Petanque Club was formed in June 2001 as a sub group of Roman Park Residents Club and currently has over fifty members.
Petanque, also known as Boule, is a very simple game, played on equal terms by men and women, young and old, on almost any surface in any weather.
The club plays on the piste, situated just below the Roman Park Residents Club premises, on Sundays at 11.00 am, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 2.00 pm.
Even if you have never played before you will be made most welcome to join in at the above times. Equipment and tuition can be supplied if required.
Social events and competitions are also arranged throughout the year.
For further details please either look at the notice board in the foyer of the club or telephone 01908 319663.

Over 50s

We meet every Tuesday, 2:00pm to 5:00pm; the members play games (cards, board games and sometimes carpet bowls) also quizzes' bingo and whist are put up by the members occasionally.
During the afternoons a break for tea, coffee and biscuits is taken, once a month cakes are provided by the group. Once a month Howard prepares a two course lunch including tea and coffee, its starts about 12:30pm. Around 15 to 18+ people are served and a nominal sum is paid by all for this meal.
Our AGM is held the last Tuesday in March when we agree to the payment of a sum to support the groups needs for the next 12 months. This is for coffee, tea, biscuits, cakes, cards, flowers, any guest speakers etc; when we have our Christmas Dinner in December at the Club, we use money in our account to reduce the amount paid by members for the dinner.
Over the past, trips to visit local sites have been taken. MK Recycling Plant, Bradwell Abbey, local Museum and the MK Theatre.
Our group has gradually shrunk to 25+ members, so we are looking for new faces to join us, come along and see what goes on. You do not have to commit to join us, but give us a try.
