Any one for croquet?

Since April twelve teams have been competing in the Swanage RNLI Croquet knockout competition. This is the third year that this event has been run as a fundraiser and it is once more proving to be very successful. Every Wednesday evening six Teams compete on the Lawns adjacent to the Cricket Club in North Swanage and go about the business of quietly raising money but also bringing people together who perhaps are not associated with the Lifeboats in any other way. Teams participating include a local Dental Practice, the Lions Club, a group called Probus, the table tennis club, some bowlers, a team from Swanage Sailing Club, a team from National Coastwatch Institute, Church Teams, a Swanage Hospital team, a group of Golfers and also individuals who have formed their own teams.

The knockout competition continues to late July or early August (weather dependent) when the final will be played and The RNLI trophy presented. The competition has proved to be an excellent and worthwhile event, with an superb atmosphere which ends with a drink and get together in the pleasant surroundings of the Cricket Club bar to round off the evening. By the way, the above photo provided by Robin shows our own team of Val, Ann, Sandra and Colin.

Well done to you all!
