Tuesday 9th May we entertained a touring side who were on their way back to Burnham-on-Sea from a four day bowls break on the Isle of Wight. The match was played over eleven rinks and with added visitors pushed the club premises and organisation to the limit. It has to be said that particular congratulations must go to the ladies who provided a finger buffet at lunchtime when they arrived and a full service two course meal after the game. A monumental task but the hard working volunteers achieved their target with great success. Well done all.
The match result was a resounding win for Devizes giving cause for celebration all around. Top rink presentations were made by captains Sheila and Dave with rewards for both greens. Winners on bottom green were Richard Bradfield, Geoff Woollan. Sheila Turner and Wendy Gaisford whilst on the top green the honours went to Angela Roberts, Will Ilott, Ken Oliver and Sheila Garlick.
Well done to all and many thanks to all who helped to run this very successful big match including all those who supported the event by signing up to play.
