It was certainly not as hot in Paris in 1789 as it was today in Heckmondwike or else the revolution would never have got off the ground. 41 members turned out today to celebrate the Bastille happening. It was all we could do to complete a couple of games of Petanque let alone run riot. Our usual BBQ had to be cancelled under council fire prevention orders so Gordon and Peter had the chance to enjoy a glass or two. However our brilliant committee girls provided us all with a fabulous buffet lunch. Well done ladies and thank you for a great effort.A As you can see here our French members were happier storming our gazebo rather than the prison walls. Some did manage attempts at our skill shot competition but even that proved a difficult event to complete as the heat defeated many.
Also on 14th July but I’m told not in 1789, true loved blossomed as Georgie and Ian Fitton tied the knot and today celebrated their Sapphire Wedding anniversary. Congratulations to you both.
The cool of the clubhouse and a brilliant lunch before a final game for those with a little energy left. Well done everyone and thank you for your support.
