At the start of each Summer, the Club holds an Invitation Lunch for its members and their guests.  This year the lunch took place on Wednesday June 19th at Worthing Indoor Bowls Club, which is set in the glorious gardens of Field Place. 

As pre-booking was required, some time had passed and Members  were counting down the days before lunch.  The weather prior to the day rained and the wind howled, what a soggy start to the week. Suddenly on Wednesday morning the clouds parted, the sun shone and the appointed day was fine, warm, and sunny.

Members and guests donned suits or summer dresses. What a wonderful start to the day!  As is the custom, all the participants were greeted by David Gibbs the Dining Officer and David Botting, the President.  On arrival, prize draw tickets were available – these served two purposes – the holder’s table number was on the front and the draw number on the back.  Tickets were also issued for a complimentary pre-lunch drink at the well-stocked bar. As always, the lunch, provided by Chevron Catering, was excellent, served promptly, and cheerfully.   The chef and team excelled themselves once again, and the meal was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Prior to dining, there was time to socialise which enabled some “catch-up” time. During the meal a quiz sheet based on the logos of chocolate bars was given to each table for completing (and head scratching!). There were eighteen pictures to identify, but nobody was able to answer all the questions, even so, it was a lot of fun.   All too soon the afternoon came to an end, and we left in glorious sunshine, in good spirits and comfortably full.
