Croquet round 2 victory

On a cloudy evening of 27th June the croquet team entertained Stafford Knot at Church Farm Rowton.   Stafford Knot were intrigued by the hoop positions and the lie of the land.    The first two Wellington pairs came from losing positions to sneak 7-6 victories, the next games also went to Wellington and as the rain increased Stafford Knot conceeded in the interest of additional drinking time.    Both teams adjourned to the warmth of the kitchen where Rob and Virginia had prepared refreshments.    Thanks very much Rob.
