WALK: Barcombe Walking Group are doing a seven mile Downland walk on Sunday from Wilmington lead by Anne Pearce. Meet at 10.30am at the Long Man car park for a walk of about seven miles with a break for lunch at Litlington Tea Gardens, easy going after the initial climb.
STOOLBALL: Just one result last week. We played Glynde at home (this is their second season since joining the League). Barcombe 248 for 3, Nic Keysell 129. Glynde 97 for 10. We have won every game we have played this year, and even if we don’t win the last two re-arranged matches, we are still winners of the Mid Division league. We qualify for Seaford, but are unsure that we will send a team to compete. The team have had a really good season, well done. We just need two more mixed teams to enter our tournament on August Bank Holiday Monday (August 31). I promise you it will be good fun, so dig out your trainers and get your entry form from Barcombe Stores.
BOWLS: Two away matches were played the week before last when the weather conditions were ideal. Both games were very enjoyable although the results did not go our way. Maresfield 73 Barcombe 60; Saltdean 74 Barcombe 66. The bowls club were invited to the School PTA Summer Picnic on the recreation ground on the following Sunday and set up a target bowls mat for people to have a go at scoring a bulls eye. We hope that all who had a go enjoyed it and maybe come along on Monday evenings between 6pm to 7.30pm for a practice session. Last week there was an internal competition between the men and women members for the Coppard Trophy which was won by the women.
