Francis Drake Bowls Club


New Romney 2024 Beano


Francis Drake Bowls Club Annual day out to New Romney Bowling Club.

The rain stopped and the sun shone on Sunday 19 May 2024 for our annual coach trip to New Romney Bowling club.

As usual we invited friends from nearby clubs to enjoy the day with us, to form a Francis Drake and Friends squad to make up 12 triples teams.

We had a pleasant and leisurely coach ride to Dymchurch, where our team and guests had a lovely, well cooked lunch in the Ocean pub, before reboarding the coach for the short trip to New Romney Bowling club.

We were greeted enthusiastically by the club chair, Gary Fagg and the club ladies captain, Sue Fagg who helped us to sort out the inevitable team changes that often happen on such events. 12 teams then battled out on a very enjoyable sunny afternoon, with a final score of New Romney 195, Francis Drake and Friends 181.

After the game we were treated to a high tea and good conversation by New Romney and finally departed after a great day amongst old friends.

We thank New Romney for their efforts to make us so welcome and hope to see them at Francis Drake for a return match very soon.
