NELSON MORROW TRAY
Doubles win for John and David G F at SurbitonFor the second year running, John Street and David Frost entered the Association Croquet Speed Doubles competition at Surbiton and were hoping to improve on the one out of five wins last year. Having learned from last year, they won 3 full 26 point games before lunch, beating Clare Benson (10) and Nelson Morrow (-0.5), George Noble (-1) and Alice Williams (3.5), Christine Ormond (5) and Ian Plummer (-0.5).
I have it on very good authority that John and David will shortly be serving champagne on the lawns to celebrate this fine victory but they are currently keeping rather quiet as to when this will be - Ed.

Where Enfield Croquet Club members held a demonstration of croquet which entertained numerous children and quite a few adults for a very hectic couple of hours.

SPOTTED ON THE LAWNS
This Peacock butterfly (Nymphalis io) was spotted on the lawns by our resident lepidopterist Tony and photographed by Brian D whilst we were waiting to play in the Association Doubles on a Monday. Tony advises that he's seen Peacocks on the lawns previously and in exactly the same place.
