Peplow’s new community group recently enjoyed an evening of Crown Green Bowls hosted by the Wollerton Bowls & Social Club.
More than twenty members of the group attended the event which included an introduction to the game followed by three practice sessions. With this July failing to deliver warm summer weather, visitors and hosts had to contend with a cool, damp evening but this did not deter the Peplownians’ enjoyment. Coaches from the Bowls Club helped their guests get to grips with the basic skills of bowling. Thumb and finger pegs, weight and land were amongst new terminology they had to wrestle with.
The evening concluded with a buffet supper organised by members of the club.
Randall Hardy, who lives in Peplow and is chairman of the Bowls Club, said “The evening was a very good opportunity for two local groups to get together. Many club members worked really hard preparing the food and their efforts were greatly appreciated. We hope that the session encouraged some of our visitors to consider playing bowls regularly in the future, and we would be delighted if they did so at Wollerton.”
