Pétanque evening for the Twinning Society

Monday, 5 June 2023

The Hebden Bridge Twinning Society enjoyed an entertaining and instructive evening at the Stones Cricket Club in Ripponden on Friday, 2nd June, honing or developing their skills in playing pétanque (boules). The beautiful setting of the club and the fun of reviving our pétanque skills was unforgettable.

The event was organised by our Vice-President David McKay in conjunction with the cricket club, and we were all very impressed by the facilities and training provided. A delicious fish and chips supper was also provided.

"Where else to be on a Friday evening" said Val Stevens President of Hebden Bridge Twinning Society (and winner with Oliver Scholefield of the competition).

"Vraiment merveilleux" said David McKay – who with Mary Barton Marshall was runner up.

Altogether we cannot recommend the Stones Cricket Club too highly for the event!

New members for the HBTS are always welcome! Anyone who is interested please contact Jane Jackson.
