The Weather holds for
Charity Day 2017

The weather forecast was dire to say the least
But as luck would have it we only experienced a
couple of light showers.
Below are some of the photos taken on the day

We had 7 visiting teams and 5 Banwell teams taking part in the day long competition for the 'Tony Johnston Charity Shield'

  The Ashcombe Team   The Clarence Team   The team from Paultons

Guess which Banwell side is not featured.
Yes you have got it in one.
It was Alan Vickery and his lot who turned
up 5 minutes before the games started
Too late for the photo

And so the games started, you will not find a lot of photos of people bowling as your ace reporter was himself bowling
But there were a lot of odd looking people kicking around, and below are just a few of them

Chris and Jill Winscombe ladies
We are happy
Didn't want to talk
to you anyway
Serious discussion between
two Winscombe ladies
Pauline! If you want a drink
pick the glass up first

Then of course there were other things going on all around

Baggo The Tombola Stall

People enjoying themselves

Alan Vickery and Grandsons

A few more people meandering around

Dee Bean Bill Watts Kim Burgess
Bet she sold lots of tickets
Is it Benny Hill
or Bill Watts?
Nothing beats a peaceful
pint in the changing room

And Finally....

  Organiser Hilary Guckian

A Big thankyou to Hilary Guckian for all the all the hard work
which ensured that the day went off perfectly, and to Vicky Guckian
and her team for the excellent lunch.

In fact a big thankyou to everyone (Too numerous to mention)
who were part of the successful Day

However there are a few people
who could not be there on the day
but made donations
and deserve a mention
(Hilary's donation was to make it
a nice round figure)

  • Trevor Burnett who sponsored and provided all the fantastic cheese FOC
  • John Evans for a donation of £50
  • Maurice Finch for a donation of £20
  • Hilary Guckian for a donation of £45

At the last count we had raised the sum of £950
So well done everyone

See you all next year
