The great and the good, the givers, the takers and the candlestick makers gathered for the last Friends game against a Bowls England Select Team at Worthing.
No players in the Bowls England Championships had played harder than these adversaries playing late on greens C and D. Things in life are often bitter-sweet, and this was one of them ; a good match saying goodbye to Worthing.
After the game we went as usual to Field Place, a venue that has always given us a good meal enjoyed by us all. Chris Smith ran and organized the raffle and friend of Friends, Jenny drew the winning tickets. The raffle made £564 for the Friends. Well done Chris, and thank you to all participants.
By the way, the Friends won the match.
