Buxted Park Bowls Club Invitation Day

Buxted Park Bowls Club held their Invitation Day on Sunday. Despite weeks of sunshine and worries about it being too hot, Sunday dawned with rain.

Hasty changes were made with the teams travelling to Wealden Indoor Bowls Club where the day took place. Club members worked at both venues to provide a salad lunch, cakes and numerous cups of tea and coffee.

After a day of competitive bowling, a team from Wealden and a team from Westfield played a 4 end final which saw Westfield behind but skip Sharon Forward sent down a weighted bowl on the last end taking out the opposition’s shot to take 3 shots and win the final.

On presentation of the shield to the skip Sharon Forward, Buxted Chairman John Hickey explained that the Competition name has been changed to Mick Read Invitation Day in memory of our founder member who died in 2016.
