Two Wins This Week


Back top league matches and two very good wins this week. Nobody turned up for our first open evening on Monday night, which is a real shame. We will repeat the evening this Monday. Get off the couch and come and have a go. Its one hour out of your life!

Matlock Tuesday bowls league.
Home – Matlock Golf Club – 27 May.

We always seem to have good close games against the Golf Club and this match was no exception. We each won two games, but thankfully the ones we lost were by a smaller margin than Matlock. Edith for once sat this match out and Rick played with Tony and the pair of them won handsomely 21 – 12. Dawn and Dot also played very well winning 21 – 13. The final result gave Parwich 69, Golf Club 67. We were one place ahead of our opponents in the league. This win will keep us there.

  • Next match – Away – Bradwell – 3 June – 6.30pm.

Matlock Thursday Friendly League.
Home – Hope Works – 29 May 2014.

Hope Works are just ahead of us in the league and we needed to score well against them. Our doubles pairs played a blinder winning two out of the three games with Liz and Sue coming out on top 21 – 10. The overall score after the doubles was 56 – 49 to Parwich. For once we struggled in the singles only winning two of the six games, but our defeats were less costly. Tony A winning 15 – 3 and Dawn 15 – 7. We sneaked a win by one point in the singles and winning overall by 127 – 110. Unfortunately this points total is not enough to get us above Hope Works, but a win is a win.

  • Next match – Away – Baslow – 5 June – 1.45pm.

See you Monday night.

Hello Possums,

Prince Charles, during his recent visit to Canada, insisted that the gap between rich and poor people must be narrowed. As a direct consequence, the first phase of 200 affordable starter homes will commence early summer within the grounds of the Charles and Camilla’s residence, Highgrove House.

Prince Charles has had his pocket money stopped for a month by Mummy, after an unguarded comment to a Jewish lady, making reference to President Putin’s actions in the Crimea, provoking a serious backlash and outrage in Russia. His comment, made during his recent Canadian tour, has aggravated an already tense situation; it may come to pass that the Prince will have to eat a large slice of his own Duchy Original Organic Humble Pie.

A jubilant candidate, named Francis Drake, won the first UKIP seat on Weymouth & Portland Council in Dorset, beating Lib Dem mayor Ray Banham. However he did not join in the celebrations until after he had finished his game of bowls.
