happened to the wheathear
right its the worst spell of weather for ages meaning that The Games
against Melbourne and Stotfold were lost. It also meant that the hospice
evening was postponed but see below. Also the date for the completion of
the Tembey and singles 1st round have had an extension to the 29th June.
All Games to be completed by then..
the weather won here but instead of bowling Lynne organised a quiz evening
with 5 teams taking part and it proved to be very successful. We had the
normal food and raffle and ended up making over £145 for the Hospice.
Well Done Lynne and thanks to the ladies who dished out the food.
