Mermaid Bowls League
Mermaid Bowls League

2023 Sellings Cup. Unfortunately, on our second attempt to hold this match, we were again thwarted by the weather. It just kept on raining and the green looked like a flood plain. In the end, the match had to be abandoned before it could even start.  However, Fairlight B.C who were kindly being our hosts for the night, provided us with sandwiches & refreshments. Our sincere thanks go to all those who worked hard to provided these refreshments.
