The highlight of the evening was a cheque for £1,100 presented to Louise Howlett for the charity REACH raised by the club members.

The accounts showed a very healthy balance with assets of over £23,000 and that the club rink fees of over £60,000 going to the Recreation Centre.

The club had three teams winning their leagues including the County Men’s Championship and on the previous day players had won both the County Men’s and Ladies’ Fours.

For those who wish to have a go at bowls the club are holding an Open Day on Sunday from 10am to 12 noon and also beginners classes will take place every Tuesday evening from 6.30pm, starting on Tuesday, May 2 for five weeks.

Everyone is welcome, with free coaching and free use of equipment for a great family sport played at a friendly club.
