An invitation from Dove Park Bowls Club was accepted by members of the WI and a good party turned out in force to try their hand at the game.
They found it much more difficult than anticipated when they were challenged to a match by the bowls club members.
However, they did extremely well for novices, until it turned chilly and the heavy dew slowed them down.
Their hosts made them most welcome and served tea and biscuits in the club house afterwards to end a super evening.
All the WI ladies were keen to try again, with provisional plans made for next year.
