Croquet Update

A team led by Rob Evan, David Tomkinson, Peter Williams, Andy Kaleta, John Cooper ( a late replacement) and this correspondant travelled to Whitchurch on Friday 11th May.   A close fought match tilted in our favour as the weather grew colder and wetter.    Thankfully Whitchurch had laid on a supurb buffet and did't seem to mind us taking the honours 4-2.
