Newick’s Jubilee bash

AS their contribution to the village’s Jubilee shenanigans, Newick Bowls Club staged a tournament for non-bowlers on the Monday afternoon.

Most of the organisations in the village entered teams as well as Lloyds Pharmacy and Duncton Electrical. Each team had a bowls club coach to keep them on track. Halfway through, all the players were entertained in the traditional style to a bowls tea with homemade cakes. In the final the winners were the Tennis Club, playing as The Raqueteers, who beat Duncton Electrical, playing as Sparkies. The whole event was organised by Allen Lucas.

n BUXTED Park Bowls Club hosted a county match between Sussex County Bowls Association and Surrey County Bowls Association.

The match of six rinks was played on Thursday, May 31. The conditions were ideal and the rink was challenging, running very fast and taking a wide swing due to the recent hot and dry weather.

After the match, won by Sussex with 126 shots to Surrey’s 109, both teams enjoy a hot meal prepared by the club members in the clubhouse.
