Gentlemen that we are though, we left without protest. We also thanked Primrose for bringing lovely chicken sandwiches and lemonade by singing a round of the national anthem to her, God Save Our Queen.
And so it is that our little group has hung its whackers for the last time at Beautiful King Edward Park. But rest assured, by 2pm Sunday next, NGBP will have found an even more salubrious venue for our weekly gathering of civilized sportsmen... and sports women of course. By definition, a gentlemen's club is ever welcoming of members of the fairer sex, whether they come with chicken sandwiches as Primrose so kindly did this week, or indeed if they wish to actually play, as miss Miss Plumb did one week ago. We hope to see you next week Miss Plumb.
