These are some of the recent activities the residents of Sirius Court have organised or participated in.
Mary Rose Talk
These are a few photos taken during and after our talk by Jane, one of our tenants, and Maurie Young, one of the original divers who found the Mary Rose. This was a really informative talk by Maurie and we can well recommend it to the other courts.
A Sapphire Tea held at Sirius Court attracted 32 guests including some of the residents from nearby Greenwich Court. We all had a great time and the celebrations carried on into the early evening.
We had a BBQ on Bank Holiday Monday and managed to dodge the raindrops. A Curry and Quiz night was well attended by 35 tenants and friends, and was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.
We have started a walking group and the photo below is of all of the walkers off on their first adventure from the Court down to Old Portsmouth, along the Hotwalls via the fair at Clarence Pier, back across the common, along Castle Street, and back to the Court. We walked 3.1 miles and all felt we had achieved something especially as some who took part were not walkers of note.
We also went across to Greenwich Court for a Quiz Night, and the Sirius Court team beat 3 Greenwich teams and retained the trophy we played for.
Chinese New Year dinner night
Just a few photos from our Chinese New Year dinner night on 17 February which was well attended by 35 people, including residents from Sirius and Greenwich Courts and a few other friends.
About 30 people enjoyed Burns night celebrations at Sirius Court. We had a piper, Haggis, and a wee dram or two…
Some of the photos from our Elvis Tribute Night attended by 35 people performed by Mike Nova on November 26th. This was Mike’s second visit to Sirius Court and all who enjoyed his repertoire of Elvis songs cannot wait for his return visit in 2017.
Some people from Sirius Court also visited Greenwich Court for their monthly quiz night and again we came away as champions, so we retain the trophy (yippee!) until next month.
So far in 2016.
A small selection of the many photos of some of the functions held in Sirius Court during the past year organised by the Social Club. The Social Club meet with nearby Greenwich Court at alternative venues for a Quiz Night where we compete for a trophy, which is presently held by Sirius Court. Watch this space for photos of the upcoming return of the Elvis Tribute Night.
We have a very good rapport with Greenwich Court and attend each others functions on all occasions.
