Kenilworth Circle was very pleased to be able to gather together for the Past Presidents dinner at Kenilworth golf club on 6th October. Due to the pandemic last years event had to be cancelled so we had a double celebration with both immediate past Presidents Bernard Baxter and Bede Hayes giving us all a very entertaining double act not to mention double the quantity of fine port!!
Congratulations to brothers Danny McAree and Tim Walmesley on their award of 25 year scrolls, presented at the September meeting at Kenilworth Circle.
Danny was presented his scroll by immediate Past President Bro Bede Hayes and Tim received his from Circle President Mike Swinburne.
We Made it!
Kenilworth Circle’s first Hybrid Circle meeting at Chesford Grange on 14 October was a great success! There were 16 brothers in attendance and 1 visiting brother from Leamington Spa Circle who was also an observer. Dialled in on-line were a further 10 brothers and 2 visitors. Brothers met for a socially distanced drink before the Circle meeting and then reconvened after for a much needed drink and social catch-up!
The Chesford Grange Hotel has been extremely helpful in ensuring that the event was Covid-19 safe and ensuring we comply with all the guidelines.
Circle President Bede Hayes had this to say about the evening “It was great to be there physically with Brothers for the meeting although the circumstances were a little unfamiliar”.
As we approach the start of another football season, we have set-up a Provincial Fantasy Football League based on the official Premier League game (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/).
All brothers and family members are welcome to enter.
As well as representing yourself we thought it would be a fun idea if every entrant also represented their Circle, such that the scores of the top three representatives of each Circle are added together to give a Circle score. At the end of the season we are looking to award prizes to the winners and a small trophy to the winning Circle.

To give everyone sufficient time, the league is due to start on Saturday 3 October (Gameweek 4). So entries should be in by that date.
Looking forward to playing against you this season!

Brother President Bede Hayes would like to thank everyone on behalf of FHL for your support of the race evening on 12th June. In the end, 36 households from 14 Circles joined us, including a family from Nazareth. In addition to raising awareness of the work of Brother President’s charity – Friends of the Holy Land – the evening raised well in excess of £400 with further donations to be added to final total.
