In a great village not so far far away, the force awakens to BREAMFEST.
A small army of volunteers led by Jon Graham put on the second BreamFest at Bream Sports Club. This year the Football Section nominated Bream Early Learners to receive a donation from the proceeds.
The event attracted visitors of all ages who enjoyed a varied program of music on our sunny lawn. Many visitors were from Bream itself and walked to the event. The club were very pleased to see so many young people enjoying the music.
The Bream Flower Show organised by Bream Gardening Society took place on the Sports Club grounds. The team from the club had worked hard to ensure that visitors to this long-standing show enjoyed facilities that it deserved. The committee and members were delighted to host the show and thank all those that attended.
The British and Irish Lions vs New Zealand was shown live on TV at Bream Sports Club. More than 40 Lions supporters turned up at 8 a.m. to watch the game. Although they would be made welcome, there were no Kiwis present!
Thanks to Lou for making numerous cups of tea and coffee and to Glyn for making the bacon rolls. Thanks also to all that turned up to watch the game. The score ended up as 15-15 and the series was drawn.
Our area has a long-standing connection with New Zealand rugby. The Bathurst Cup was donated in 1931 by Lord Bledisloe of Lydney. Lord Bledisloe (then Charles Bathurst) also donated the cup that is still contested in the Forest – the Forest of Dean Combination Cup.
“Blanco” is the best darts player in the Worthington Champion of Champions heat at Bream Sports Club.
Mark Blanford won the Worthingon Champion of Champions 2017 heat at Bream Sports Club on July 1st. Mark emerged the champion of the 16 players that entered the heat at Bream Sports Club on a sunny July afternoon. Mark is popularly known as “Blanco” among Darts players in the Forest of Dean.
The event was organised by Scott who said “The club are proud to announce that Blanco will represent Bream in the Finals at St David’s Hall, Cardiff on 26th August”.
