On Monday 9th September there was a musical happening at Devizes Bowls Club when Bowls Wiltshire Ladies held their annual Patron’s Day with the theme of ‘Music’. Amongst the 55 who attended there were Minstrels from Box, Morris Dancers from Amesbury, Rock & Rollers from Devizes and Bradford on Avon, and a whole range of other assorted music – inspired costumes. After a photo call the challenge of bowling while in fancy dress was undertaken with varying degrees of success. The game consisted of 3 sets of 7 ends and then the total shots for each individual decided the winner.
Results – 1st – Ann Poolman (Blue Circle)
2nd – Eleanor Mahoney (Devizes)
3rd – Margaret Webber (Alderbury)
Despite a few showers everyone seemed to enjoy the day and the raffle raised a good sum of money for the funds. Bowls Wiltshire Ladies are grateful to Devizes Bowls Club for once again providing the venue for this event.
