Chelsea Pensioners and The Bowls Club
A group of Chelsea Pensioners joined the bowlers at the Peacehaven bowls club for a couple of sessions after being greeted by Club President Alan Wallace and Vice Chair Phil Armstrong on Wednesday 17th May.
Phil said “We were lucky that the rain stopped in time this morning as we’ve been looking forward to receiving our special guests” and 86 year old Chelsea Pensioner Audrey Merton added that she was grateful to be picked for the visit to Peacehaven. She told us that she is one of 15 women and 288 men who form the ‘Pensioners’. “I’m looking forward to my turn” she added.
The Mayor of Peacehaven, Cllr. Brian Gosling along with other dignitaries joined in the spider game to start the afternoon off. A raffle raised money for Help the Heroes.
