Bowls Wiltshire v Swindon & District

The first Bowls Wiltshire Mixed Friendly of the year was held on the 6th May at Swindon BC, this match is an annual event between the two Associations.

A very pleasant afternoon was had by all, the weather was superb and the green excellent.  BW came out the winners 128-111 ably assisted by a rink from Garrards BC, thank you to them for this.

There was a lot of laughter and banter as we met up with friends not seen for a while, so all in all a most enjoyable game.

Our thanks to Swindon BC for hosting the match, to their catering and bar staff, and to all those who supported the chosen Charity for 2018 ‘Brighter Futures ’, raising a very creditable £54.
