The year's weather did not get off to a great start but, luckily for the Bowls Club, this does not usually affect our ability to continue.
Nevertheless, our yearly garden party was a little, or more than a little, wet. But true Brits, we carried on and had a wonderful time with the help of a marquee. Games and competitions went on regardless, with a very amusing arrangement of photographs, with members adding their own captions, some on the slightly saucy side, but nobody took offence (we hope). The winners of the garden party competitions were Alan Pegrum, Jack Mac and Brian Smith, which included shooting at a bell (not a person) spinning top and guess how much money was in a jar. This event was supported by members giving a superb rendition of how to, or not to, sing, much to the amusement of the onlookers.
The Club competition champions were: Club Champion doubles, Kay and Peter Debenham (keeping it in the family) and Club Champion singles Bart Clements – well done. All have their names on the hall boards for posterity in case anybody forgets.
