Friday 27th April saw the annual Lamb Gambol where the Lady Veterans and the Senior Men play a better ball competition for various cuts of lamb. The days before the competition were full of dire weather warnings with heavy rain and high winds expected. In the end the day was cool with light showers and everyone came home dry and happy. An excellent lunch was enjoyed by all. During lunch Henry Irons was fined and made an extremely generous donation to the Captains charity, again thank you Henry.
Apart from the Lady Vets and Senior Mens Captain a lot of people put in a great deal of effort to make the day memorable. Special thanks to Annie Matthews who even though unwell produced an excellent prize table and Roger Priestley for all the behind the scenes organisation.
The winners were
John Harbinson, Pete Meredith, Caroline Ramsbottom & Rose Jones
Nearest the pin Ladies Pat Parry
Nearest the pin Gentlemen Stuart Sandercock
