Boules Match postponed

Regretfully, we and the Guernsey Society have agreed that it is not feasible to go ahead with the Boules Match on 25 June in view of the railway strike and likely disruption to transport. We are considering a new date of 13 August. Watch this space!


Defend your Island!

Last year we were victorious in our annual Boules match against Guernsey and are the proud holders of the Muratti Shield. But it is under threat. We meet our Guernsey cousins again in Cleaver Square, Kennington on 25 June. We need YOU to help us keep it. No particular level of expertise is required. Play will commence around 2 pm after lunch in the Prince of Wales pub. If you would like to join in or find out more, drop an email to
