Bowls: Last week the team had a league game away to their nearest rivals in the league table, Horam Cannons who currently lie one point below Burwash in second place. The matches were hard fought with the triples Joan Howard, Mary Taylor and Alan Green just holding to win by 2 shots. Keith & Angela Marden and Gavin Wood lost by one shot. After tea break pairs Keith Wood & Julie Hawkins won by 8 shots and Cherry Taylor & Alec Martin lost by one. This gave both teams 4 league points and keeps Burwash just on top.
