A Barbers’ team participated in the Inter-Livery Croquet Competition held at Surbiton on 8 June. We had mixed fortunes. Liverymen Paul Hunter and Oliver Brettle (shown on the right in the photograph) won the Golf Croquet. The Master and William Stern (father of Freeman Chris Stern) did less well in the Association Croquet Competition – and there’s no photograph of them! However, in their defence, William Stern had recently suffered a ham string injury and could barely stand, but gallantly turned out in order not to let the side down, and the Master had practised as much as he had planned!
