Friends Summer Party 2017

Friends Summer Party 2017

Summer Party 2017

The Friends summer party took place in July, with thanks Steve Riley who organised a bowls and putting competition in the magnificent Will to Win garden in Hyde Park. We had a Victrix Ludorum for bowls and a Victor Ludorum for putting. Congratulations to them both and to the numerous runners up. Chocolate bars were their reward.

Thanks to John Heywood who helped and advised the putting competitors and passed on his expert tips, to Simon Walton who was an amiable barman dispensing wine all evening very assiduously, and to the waitresses who circled tirelessly with the canapés. Also thanks go to Sue Heywood, the trustee who made the arrangements for us all, and of course where would we be without Steve Riley who gave us a short tutorial on the rules of bowls after which we of course knew everything there was to know!
