Nailsea Ladies Bowls Club held their long awaited Ladies Triples Tournament after the enforced break due to Covid last month.
The weather on the day was more like April but, with the added incentive of cake as well as strawberries and cream, the teams bowled through with enthusiasm.
Some 14 teams in all competed for the illustrious title and after a long day of competitive action the eventual winners were one of the teams from Poppies at Portishead, The Royals.
The trio of Margaret Excell, Joy Kelly and Helen Nunton performed excellently to hold off second placed The Posset Girls and third placed Trouble to take home the crown.
