Croquet players cater to Centenary crowds

LIKE most little clubs in town, the members of West Toowoomba Croquet Club each contribute to the success of their organisation.

When there is a function to cater for, some of those members chip in and cook up a slice or cake to add to the table.

And when it comes to scones, club secretary Ros Dryden has it covered.

Ms Dryden has a background in catering, and is an 'old hat' at whipping up a batch of her signature scones.

Ms Dryden will however have her work cut out for her in the lead up to this weekend's Newtown Park Centenary Celebrations.

The club will offer visitors Devonshire teas in its clubhouse in the park.

"I am going to stay at home and bake scones until they tell me to stop!" she said.

The celebrations will be held on Sunday, November 3 from 10am.
