Bowls Wiltshire President in table collapse incident

BWL President Dawn Edwards was involved in an amusing incident tonight along with Graham Annetts, Gerald Webb and Officers from Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire & Dorset whilst attending a Corporate Dinner hosted by Bowls England.

As the Main Course was being served the table started to collapse and only the swift reaction of those sitting at the table saved the dinner and drinks from ending up on the floor. Staff from the Royal Pump Rooms in Royal Leamington Spa quickly came to their aid by supporting the table whilst another table was quickly set up and the dinners transferred. All ended well for those on table 11 when two bottles of bubbly were produced for them to enjoy the rest of the evening.

President Dawn stated ” I haven’t laughed so much for years”.
