West Mersea Bowls Club Contributor


An afternoon to dispel the lockdown blues.

The club once again proved that despite all restrictions we can still all enjoy our afternoon of bowls . The teams took to the 3 permitted rinks but not before the ladies had treated the gents to our rendering of the Hakka which must have had the desired effect as the ladies had the upper hand in the first half.

We then paused for tea (fatal) not the delicious sausage rolls and cakes cooked by the ladies, they were enjoyed by everyone.

President Annette made the first draw for the 50/50 club the winners being

  • 1st prize. Susie Howard
  • 2nd. Prize Meg Ross
  • 3rd Prize Annette Oakley

The men definitely dominated the second half of the game winning on all rinks.

Winning rink for the ladies: Annette Oakley, Jenny Young and Mags Hobby.

Winning rink for the gentlemen: Colin Howard, Adrian Smith and Captain Colin.

President Annette then presented all winners with a very useful prize .

Throughout the entire afternoon all social distances and sterilisation of equipment and of all items handled was strictly observed by all. Thank you all for conforming also for your support which made this a successful afternoon .

Until our next social occasion keep safe and we look forward to enjoying your company again .
