We have a game against the Chelsea Pensioners on Wednesday afternoon. Team all sorted, so that’s good
BUT we have just heard that they will be coming by coach arriving around 12.30/12.40 pm. They will march down to the green with their medals shining on their beautiful red coats. Not only marching but led by a bagpiper no less, all in aid of our Centenary!
We would like as many members as possible to come down to welcome the Chelsea Pensioners and their bagpiper on to the green. It doesn’t matter if you’re playing in the team, out for a walk or on your lunch break. It is such a privilege and one that will not be repeated for another hundred years so it would be super if you could be there.
If you have a Centenary polo shirt, please wear that. Blue is preferable for the team players but any colour would be great. We are looking to get as many photos as possible.
Once they have enjoyed a welcome drink and changed into their bowls gear, the match may start slightly earlier than 2.30 pm so everyone is welcome to stay and watch.
