Conkers and eggs...

A good old fashioned game of conkers, and a totally out-of-season game of egg tapping


Meet at The Furnace Inn at 3pm and then we will head over to Darley Park for the games to begin!


Conkers....

Bring your conker ready assembled, so drill a hole through the middle and thread with string or a shoe-lace and knot the end.

Two games. Game 1 is a 'clean fight', just standard conker and string. Game 2 is the cheating version, so baked, soaked in vinegar etc. Whatever you think will make an uber-conker!

Eggs...

Just bring a hard boiled egg


No playground health and safety measures here, so play at your own risk!

Weather dependant, so if the forecast is bad I may re-arrange or change the venue.

    Changed the venue to The Furnace Inn for the whole thing as I don't fancy getting cold and wet on the park!
    I have a few spare conkers too if anyone needs one.

      Kite Flying sounds like a great idea Katy! :-). My only problem at the moment, would be, I don't have a kite ;-).
