Henry’s Day at the Wheatsheaf – Sunday 9th June 2019

Good afternoon all,

Please see the invitation below from the Wheatsheaf PC to join them at the Wheatsheaf for Henry’s Day – an open melee to celebrate their past landlord who brought boules or Pétanque to the area.

It is usually a fantastic day, so why not go along and join in the fun.

Linda has asked that you let her know if you will be attending as this will give her an idea of numbers and will be a great help for organisational purposes as there will be a BBQ. She has also asked me to let you know that you will still be welcome to come along at the last minute should you find yourself at a loose end.

Colin Ballett Open Doubles – 2019

This year as a result of the closure of the Kymin the Colin Ballet Open Doubles is being held at Monkstone PC on Sunday the 9th of June.

Colin Ballet was a founder member of the Penarth Petanque Club and instrumental in its development, before he sadly passed away in 2010.

I knew Colin well as I worked with him for many years in British Telecom where he was a popular and well liked character who always liked to talk about pétanque or his regular trips to Cyprus with his wife Simone.

This competition is popular too so you’ll need to get your entries in quickly to secure your place.
