Boules Event Report

On Sunday, 14 July, we held our annual Boules event to compete for the prestigious Gardner Cup. Around 34 people enjoyed fine French cheeses and pates, fresh baguettes and a refreshing salad followed by a light, crispy Apple tart with cream accompanied by a drink or two before entering the rigour of the Boule competition.

The competition consisted of 8 teams which required 3 rounds of competition and the grand final itself. Games were full of tension as teams surged into leads only to be pegged back following a brilliant pitch. No quarter was asked or given as knuckles were bared and emotions soared and plummeted.

The final was a tense affair watched eagerly by the large crowd and The City All Stars (Katy Dowding, Eddie Whittaker, Adrian & Belinda Marklew) just edged it against Half a Run (Karen & Stuart Barker plus Holly & Tricia Harbour).

Thanks to the Village Hall Committee for their hard work in making this a great event.
