Julie’s cousin Mark is an amateur boxer and we drove down to Worthing this weekend to offer our support at the Coast to Coast Boxing Club’s ‘Twas The Fight Before Christmas’ event at the Charmandean Centre.
The action began just after 5pm on Saturday with originally twenty amateur bouts scheduled. However, only sixteen took place and Mark was very disappointed to discover that his opponent had pulled out on the day.
Still, we enjoyed the action with various ages involved, from very young through to senior level.
Sunday morning saw Julie and I walk along the seafront to Worthing Pier, trying to ignore the somewhat chilly wind and overcast conditions. I have always loved a classic British seaside town, especially having been brought up – mostly – in Bournemouth and Cliftonville, Kent. Still, we appreciated the tea served at the end of the Pier in the attractive cafe.
