Isle of Wedmore Bowls Club Green Opening was very different this year. It was the first to be held in two sessions on a Sunday and, due to the ongoing COVID restrictions, there was no bar or refreshments served, “bring your own” prevailed. Currently we are restricted to no more than 24 players on the Green at any one time. The weather was lovely and sunny with little or no wind and the Green looked good and played well, thanks to the work of the Green team over the winter.
Play started with all the bowlers standing round the green for a “spider” with the proceeds going to the Visually Handicapped Bowls. Bottles of whisky were presented to Peter Smith and Julie Collins for getting closest to the spider.
12 ends of bowls were played, in each session with a break halfway. It was lovely to see members again after the lockdowns and welcome some new faces who joined during last year.
