A day by the sea for Cornwall boules players

Sunday 24 June marked the eighth consecutive year that Cornwall boulistes have met in Penzance on Quay Fair day to play informal games in St Anthony's Gardens. The Gardens lie just behind the Promenade and are also at the hub of the Quay Fair fun-fair: sea views, large crowds and high-volume noise from the rides make quite a contrast with the peaceful rural setting of our usual events at the Star Inn, St Day.

Fine weather brought a good turnout, including both regular players and a number who dust off their boules once a year specially for this event. The playing surfaces in the Gardens were acknowledged to be 'challenging' - an uneven layer of small beach gravel over very uneven tarmac - but rewarded those who took the trouble to look for a landing spot for their boules. The presence nearby of the Yacht Inn helped to console those who didn't. Here's to next year!
