Thringstone, Leicestershire. 24/05/2016
We all knew there was no lunch to be had at Thringstone Bowling Club, but it did not stop the club supplying plenty of hot drinks , biscuits and crisps for us; lovely.
The day was fine and we had the match to look forward to. The captain of the day was himself, our Match Secretary, Adie, and as usual he had it all under control, but could he get the Friends to win, no.
The Friends played well and made friends, the most important thing, but the team against us was too strong. This did not stop us from enjoying the day at a club that came from coal mining days in Leicestershire. The club has a good social room and bar where we had our after match meal. A help yourself to a proper quiche, pie, meat, cheese salad with plenty of hot potatoes and buttered bread. Captain of the day, Adie cornered the top rinks giving them prizes and then presented the club with a framed certificate of our visit for the day.
Our thanks go to Mick Carrington, who organised the club for our visit and to all his helpers, who made it such a success and those who made it an excellent draw. All good wishes to their thriving junior section and all the members of their club.
