Leader/Coordinator: Ann Buchanan

Aims and Objectives of the group: To enjoy the fresh air as we attempt to play a competitive but friendly game of boule.

Any expertise needed: Not really. Strength to throw a metal ball and a good aim are necessary.

Equipment needed (rough costs if any): The group has all the equipment needed.

Maximum number permitted in the group: 24

Location, day and time of meetings: Back garden of a home in Friars Walk, Wednesdays (except 2nd one of the month), May to October. 2:00pm to 4:00pm. Weather permitting.


A brief description of a typical meeting: First there get equipment from the shed. Register done and subs paid at the start. Divide into 2 or 4 teams according to numbers present. Two teams on each lawn play a game – first team to score 13 wins. Break for tea/coffee and biscuits around 3pm (all help as required with this). Play another game or two as time (and weather) permits.

All help to put away equipment. (Play can be stopped if rain comes, as there is no shelter for that number of people, or the session is cancelled if very wet.)
