HEAVY rain failed to dampen the enthusiasm of 20 teams of bowlers at Market Overton Bowls Club’s gala day on Sunday.
Competition was fierce with the Long Shots from Belvoir Vale taking the honours at the end of play.
David Duquemin ran the competition and presented Long Shots, John and Jill Lambert, and Viv and Lawrence Pugh, with their awards. Barbara Smith and her team kept players fed and topped up with tea and coffee.
Always popular, the gala day was over-subscribed by eight teams who will be given priority for entry into the next gala day on Sunday, September 11.
