BEXLEY BATTLE RESULTS
Unfortunately, we came second…out of two! We won the PDI round but lost both print rounds. A special mention, however, to two members who received 20s on the night: Clive Williams for ‘Girl in a Hat’ and ‘Shades of Greta’ Paul Lehane for ‘Out of the Blue’ Congratulations Clive and Paul!
We now have the following:
