On Tuesday afternoon 12th March, a sunny but rather blustery day, Richard Chamberlain, Vice-Captain of Benitachell Bowls Club welcomed Chatham Civil Service Touring Team.
This was the 5th year we had the pleasure of their company, Captained by Derreck Sherress in his familiar Captains hat, Gold braid and all. The guests enjoyed lunch and then prepared themselves to do battle.
Despite the wind, bowling on all rinks was to a high standard, BBC managed to win on six rinks and Chatham on one rink, the shot difference being 156 – 101. However more importantly, at the end of the game everyone adjourned into the Club House to enjoy a drink, the raffle and lots of chatter.
We very much look forward to a return visit in the coming years.
