Did you know you've got 4 miles of tubing in your stomach? You have. And it's coiled up everso tightly... so they can cram it all in.

Hey boys,

Does anyone know where I might find Bill the Builder?

I say, I am playing bowls at your green on Saturday when I stop off at Northampton en route to York. Do you have somewhere I can tie up and water my faithful black horse, Bess?

Yours,

Dicky Turpin (Bowls Essex)

May I suggest you publish your address and post code.

I have played here before but the post code would make it more easy to find.

If it's here I can't find it :-(

Hi Tony

Good to hear from you!

It's been great to get on our own pad after so many years (17 to be exact) and the green has been playing well.

Next step is to get a small changing pavilion, hopefully before the start of next season. Waiting for permision from the council at the moment.

Hope you are keeping well?

Best wishes

Chris

Living opposite the New Express Lift Bowling Club's Green in Cotswold Avenue, Duston, I am wondering when the inaugral "Home" match on the Green will be played. The work that has been put in by the Club on the Green has been nothing short of miraculous from when the work started.

Hello Donald,

Thanks for your kind words.  All being well we shall be ready for the commencement of the new season next April.

Sitting on the Seat

 

I wonder if you notice when you walk upon the green,

how oft a candid critic is already on the scene.

No matter who your friends may be or who you chance to meet,

you will find the perfect bowler there "Sitting on the Seat".

He greets youpatronisingly then ridicules your stance,

and says you need not play your game, you've lost it in advance.

His vivid reminiscences so varied and replete, 

are constantly repeated whilst  "Sitting on the Seat".

Should it be yourmisfortune to trundle down a wide,

his voice resounds across the green sarcastic aside.

He draws intricate diagrams so accurate and neat,

which makes you really wonder why he's "Sitting on the Seat".

He oft lamentsthe passing of stalwarts of his time.

You wish him relegated to a distant torrid time.

His instructions flow in torrents much too caustic to repeat,

He makes himself a nuisance when he's "Sitting on the Seat"

You vilify your conscience with a deep and fervent curse.

Your only consolation is that matters might be worse.

For when your days are over and your training is complete,

You'll be qualified to join the best bowler "Sitting on the Seat"
