Village Hall - Boules

Over 40 hardy souls came along to the Village Hall on Sunday July 19th to join in our French Lunch and Boules Competition to decide the winner of the prestigious Gardner Cup.  We did have a few showers but they failed completely to dampen the spirits of the revellers.

The pâté, selection of cheeses and salads were eagerly consumed by the attendees and these treats were topped off with some excellent French Apple Tarts that easily outshone their Gallic equivalents, despite being made in Gilkes Lane!  The Village Hall also made a little money to off-set its many bills thanks to the French Beer and Wine that were quaffed.

The Boules competition, which was overseen by our guest Referee and Bon Viveur, George Adams, was keenly fought with no quarter asked or given.  The hero and heroines of the day were Jo and Gaynor van Dijk who along with Katya and Angelina, their two young guests from Chernobyl, fought through to the final and proved excellent competitors.  In the end, experience counted and Angela & Brian Emmerson (again!), assisted by Barbara and Steve Kenney, were presented with the Gardner Cup.  Unfortunately, Janet Gardner was unable to be there due to ill health and we wish her a speedy recovery.

Thanks to all who came along and to the committee for their hard work.
