The Ship Inn vs Villagers Sportsday Photos

On Sunday we had a competition in the lower playing field of The Ship Inn vs The Villagers at what Jane would like to call "Baseball" (more like rounders!!!), with the use of a heay iron frying pan as the bat, and beer barrels as "bases" we played. The Ship took a substantial lead in the first innings, but were clawed back in the second innings and at thhe break we had a lovely picnic provided by Jane at the Ship. After the break we played on and with a home run by Henry Willman the eventual winners were THE VILLAGERS!!!!!. Here are some pictures from the afternoon click on the picture to get a bigger size.
