Husthwaite's Orchard Village Club
Husthwaite County Primary School plays Orchard Village Club in Mixed Ability Sports.
Miss Goodchild's year 5/6 pupils warmly welcomed fifteen Orchard Village Club members to the school , to play dominoes in the classroom and Boccia in the main hall.
School Chef Amanda provided the midday meal for club members, and Joe Mckechnie, Hambleton's Disability Sports Officer, led the Boccia session, using equipment belonging to Husthwaite Village Hall's Primetime Club.
These Paralympic Games allow adults and children to compete on an equal footing.
"Inter-generational games are wonderfully invigorating for the older players" says Robin Walton, volunteer co-ordinator of Primetime and the Orchard Village Club. "We always welcome new players of all ages and abilities who come and enjoy Boccia and New Age Kurling with us. Both these Husthwaite Village Hall clubs are specifically designed to help alleviate rural isolation."
We would like to encourage new members to join in the social activities we offer.
Some of the school children have grandparents living locally. We hope they will be encouraged to come and see for themselves, what fun can be had here in Husthwaite.

Venue: Husthwaite Village Hall (except when we play away at neighbouring clubs)
