The picture below shows Roy Smith, President of Thongsbridge Cricket & Bowling Club receiving a cheque for £1000 from the Foresters Friendly Society, Court William & Mary No. 332. Presenting the cheque are Margaret Evans, Chief Ranger, and Adrian Fish the Secretary of the Court.
The cheque will go towards the cost of new steps improving access to the bowling club. The steps were installed in 2020 but the formalities were only completed in September 2021 when the club hosted the renewal of the Foresters Annual Bowls tournament competed for by members of the Society.
The tournament paired non-bowlers with seasoned pros and the winners of the tournament were Wilma Mitchell and Bernie Allsop who beat Richard Armitage and Ted Ingman in the final.
Thank you to Richard Armitage for the words and photograph.
