Recently we hosted a very successful event attended by about 30 people from Monkton Farleigh and nearby. The village hall was the venue and teams were organised for a fun game of Boules, accompanied with a BBQ – all in the name of fundraising for our beloved church.
The winning team ‘The Broadstones Boulers’ are pictured below in all their glory, being the team who made the best use of a very undulating pitch!!!! Some might say that it was all won more by good luck than good management but we will be back next year to defend our title, always assuming that there is a next year!To retire undefeated would be just too much to live with.
The weather held fair for the whole afternoon and we finished in very bright sunshine which was lovely. Altogether it was a very pleasant way to spend a traffic-free bank holiday afternoon.
