Caister Bowls Club have welcomed special visitors as part of their golden anniversary celebrations.

The presidential team of Bowls England visited the club at the King George V playing field for an honorary match to mark the occasion.

Together, the team had travelled from fourteen different counties - including Devon, Lancashire and the Isle of White - to pay tribute to the club’s achievement.

The match resulted in an honourable draw, 115 shots each.

After the match, the teams enjoyed a meal together at Branford’s Restaurant at The Old Hall Hotel.
