Saturday 24 June 2017 Our club’s 90th Anniversary

A beautiful day . . . the rain threatened, but never came. Together with special guests, members enjoyed the mixed drive. . . . bowling affected by the smell of the barbecue cooking close by !! It was well worth waiting for. We sat and ate around the green – catching up with one another’s news. Thanks go to John, Mick and Jim for organising a good day.
