Lewes Skittles Tournament

It’s that time of year again.  The time of year that we look forward to for 12 straight months; the time that we in Lewes dream of; the time when all of our wishes might just come true.  It’s Skittles Week!

On the evening of Wednesday 22nd June 2022, 6 intrepid members of the Herbert Scott team including Director Kevin Scott, made their way bravely down to Grange Gardens, to participate in one of the most highly-anticipated events in the Lewes Calendar.  

Now more than 60 years in the making, the popular event has grown from a six-lane competition to one requiring up to 16 lanes, and anything up to – or even in excess of – 100 teams of 6 keen competitors, all eagerly taking part over the course of a week.

Despite half of the team only attending skittles for the first time, everyone bowled bravely and we even had several strikes.  Our Trainee Client Administrator, Eva, said “No one was more surprised than me” when she knocked down all 9 pins on her third ball!

Herbert Scott are no stranger to local causes.  We’ve been supporting Chestnut Tree House since 2014 but the team were more than happy to turn their efforts toward helping the Rotary Club support other local causes instead.  In fact, we showed our support several times during the evening at Commercial Square’s Bonfire Society-run bar!
