Seven of us met at the Vicarage Lawn Bowls Club including Val who we welcomed back after nearly four years away. I say we met at this particular venue...we had to make sure we were at the correct one as there happen to be two bowling greens on the one site each belonging to a different club....the other being Brighton Bowls Club. Now that's what you call a local derby! Our main job was to weed the borders that run adjacent to the bowling green. Large borders they are too and while not overgrown there were plenty of weeds including lots of the sticky stuff! Extricating it was quite hard at times due to the lack of rain but Michael, Tara, Rosemary, Phillipa, Val and myself pulled and plucked while Amro did an amazing job as chief weed collector. Still lots to do....
