East Leake Bowls Club, Nottinghamshire, 40th Anniversary 05/09/2015
Every club sets the day out differently, and this day we were charged to find our own lunch. This was no hardship, for East Leake is a lovely village, and just right for exploring and buying food you should not eat for lunch.
The green is situated in a park, with one side next to a big children’s playground, and the other side next to a car park, the village hall and the parish council offices. It is at the tip of Nottinghamshire before you go into Leicestershire. (The village fete was on in the hall and in it was a runner bean at least three foot long.) The weather was sunny, and Captain of the day, Adie Lloyd, ticked our players present, and, when ready, out they went to do their best. However, the home team, which included one of the Nottinghamshire men’s triples, who went to Leamington, played well and we could not match them. At half time we went in for a full salad!
Further sabotage. We all enjoyed it. After, East Leake Captain, Sue Mac.,welcomed us to the club. After the match, Adie made a speech and gave out his coasters to the top rinks. AND there were five big gateau’s and flans AND a huge amount of cheese and biscuits to eat after the match. Perhaps we should not have eaten any lunch? Thank you East Leake for making us so welcome and giving us a thoroughly enjoyable day.
Can we come back one day?
