Francis Drake Bowls Club


Annual away fixture at New Romney BC

A good number of our members joined with Ladywell BC for the annual away fixture at New Romney.

After a pleasant, if damp, lunch stop at Dymchurch the coach arrived at our destination just as the rain stopped.

No one knows what arrangement Captain Ron made with the gods of weather but whatever it was it worked and it stayed fine all afternoon before pouring once more just after the last wood was bowled.

FDBC had an enjoyable afternoon, beating their hosts by a narrow margin, followed by a very welcome and convivial tea in the clubhouse.

Our thanks go to all who organised the trip and we look forward to next year.
