    Impromptu Skittles on the Green – What a Hit!


    The village green had not seen anything like it for many months, teams of Ladies and Gents competing extremely enthusiastically over a game of skittles but….. everyone having, in the words of Miranda’s Mum, such fun! Fuelled by a small army of wine bottles and the odd beer and G&T, the tension mounted as the teams fought their way through four rounds, eleven per side.
    The Gents’ team led by two points after the first round and there was many a miss but some full houses as all 9 skittles were bowled over.
    The Gents won the second round by only one point and they then unknowingly led in the third. However all wanted to play again, thus it was all to play for in the fourth and final round!
    Humorous comments peppered the final round as some stepped up to the plate and others failed miserably, (The Winn Brook seeing a great deal of activity).  In the end? Yes ,the Ladies’ team won the final round by 3 points and therefore earned an honourable draw.
    A really successful social event which we will sustain throughout the Summer. Well played everyone!
