**  JOHNS TROPHY COACH  12th September **

 

Ladies

 

On Sunday 12 September we still have seats for the coach going to Royal Leamington Spa to watch the semis and final of the Johns Trophy.  The cost is currently £25 but if we have more people the cost will go down. 

 

If you have never been to Leamington but hear about it spoken about by club members, now is the time to go and experience the atmosphere.  Rattles, whistles bells are all welcome to make as much noise as possible to support our Surrey team. 

 

If you don’t want to watch the bowling there is a Food and Wine festival on I am told which might entice your taste buds more.

 

The park café will be open as will the Clubhouse I am told, so you will be able to get hot/cold drinks and ice cream in any number of different flavours.   It may be sensible to do what all bowlers do, bring your chairs with you, although there may be a few chairs available but there is no guarantee.

 

Please let me, Charlotte or Zoe know if you want further information.  Come and have a good day out.

 

Sheron Mitchell

County Secretary
