Lea B Poem
We are the buzzing Bees, the buzzing Bees of Lea.
We travel the land with woods in hand,
To play the game we’re free.
In waistcoats red, or so it’s said,
Our eyes will burn like fire.
So just beware, coz if we’re there,
To win is our desire.
Yet even in matches, things can get really hot,
When one cries, “oh you tinker”,
and t’other cries “That’s shot!”.
But in our play, we all do say,
We’ll not play foul or cheat.
but enjoy the game, with just one aim,
to make sure - that we’re not beat.

Bromyard Triples 2013
The Bromyard Triples were played at the Larruperz. centre on Sunday 24th March 2013. Two teams from the Lea Club entered these were
Team 1 June Smith Merion Attwood and Colin Smith
Team 2 were Gwyneth Jones _Sheila Clapson and John Clapson .
Team 2 won through to the Quarter Finals ,at the end of the ten ends the scores were level so total shots were added up and they lost by one shot.Team 1 won through to the finals against a team from Ross Bowling Club and seemed to have lost it when they dropped 4 shots about half way through the game but they came back on the last end to take 3 shots and level the scores ,another end had to be played and Colin got his first wood close to the jack to take shot, Ross with their final wood tried to take the Lea wood off but hit the centre block so Coliun did not have to bowl his last wood giving the trophy to Lea.
If you would like to visit us, ( and we love visitors) you will find us on the A 40, about five miles out of Ross on Wye.
From the other direction (Gloucester) we are the same distance from Huntley,
