What a great day with sun shining; the Greens were full of players, lots of laughter and friendly banter… the way bowls should be played on these occasions. We also need to thank our head of match Robyn McPherson who has (over the last 8 weeks) been at the end of the phone to answer any questions we had. We did try her out with the ‘Heat, Inclement Weather and Injured Players Policies’ and she came up trumps for us each time.
Congratulations to all the winners and to all the participants for making it a wonderful day.
