Opening game marred by weather
Christine Richards, Senior Vice President was delighted to welcome the County President, Maureen Edwards (Rugby Thornfield) to her Club, Lillington for the opening event of the season last weekend. In spite of the inclement weather more than 20 intrepid players made the most of the facilities and managed to play 6 ends before conceding to the weather.
An initial ‘Spider’ raised £52 for the President’s charity, Friends of the Hospital of St Cross, Rugby, and a well-supported tombola raised £135 for County funds.
The afternoon finished with tea, cakes and lots of laughter with everyone making the most of the opportunity to catch up with old friends and meet new.
