Peter White is organising a Muddlers Charity event for Friday August 9th. It will be followed by a BBQ for which you are invited to donate or not for your food.


                          BRITISH HEART FOUNDATION

Last week was a busy week at Hythe Bowling club so lets start off as usual with Peter Whites Muddles report.
Muddles 8th & 12th July
37 Members turned up on Monday for muddles and Jonathon Cowans very graciously offered to stand down to leave one of the teams with even numbers.  However he does make a fine cup of tea and washes up to a faultless standard.
One team of triples stood out above the others, which was Lois Witton, Pat Carney and Richard Mansfield scoring 23.
As expected, due to the late start at 6pm and many muddlers playing in the charity match against the Zippers, fewer turned up for muddles on Friday and of the 10 intrepid souls who insisted on playing despite the enticing cooking smells wafting across the green from Trevor’s sausages Barry Balcanquall and Dickie Wheeler were top scorers with 19.
Next late start on the fixture list due to an earlier match will not be for another 10 muddles sessions, which will be the 12th August.
                                   The Zippers Charity Match
Our own Vic Powell and his wife Pat the organisers of the Zippers match said “Could you please inform every one that we made £569 .00 on the day, please convey a very big THANK YOU to everyone who took part and helped in what  proved to be a very successful event”
