w/c 21st July 2019

After busy Sunday (see Sep report) we got back down to normal games

On Monday the team were home to North Wilts in the North Wilts mixed league, unfortunately it did not go Town’s way and they lost 39-55 (2-8 pts)

In the evening Stuart and Yvonne took on the reigning champions in the West Wilts Holloway mixed Pairs at Avon BC, they started well but ended up losing 23-12, Apparently this was the first team from Calne to take part in this competition, roll on next year!

On Tuesday in the White Horse T & B league division 4, We took on Trowbridge Westbourne and ended up winning 17-14, so should remain top of the league.

Wednesday the ladies played a Nor West league game away to Chippenham Town, who fielded a very strong team .Calne lost to them 33-40. Let us look forward to our three remaining games and hope we can pick up some points..

Thursday the RHS South West in Bloom judge visited the club to assess our entry in this event. The visit took place on one of the hottest days ever, but the general ambience of the club was very good.. This time the judge, who had visited on a previous occasion, took a good look around. He, along with Trudy from the council stayed for a considerable time. As well as Barry there were 5 ladies present. Once the judge had left we had proseco, scones and cream courtesy of Yvonne. Several photographs were taken some of which I have added to this piece.
