NORTH HERTS AND WILLIAN – BOWLS CLUBS GALA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The biggest event of the year to celebrate Willian being 100 years old.

Held last week in conjunction with North Herts Bowls Club, who brilliantly organised the Day, led by Dorothy Harrison.
60 local Bowlers took part in several matches throughout the day, which included a sumptuous lunch, plus lashings of Tea and Cake.
The weather forecast of thunderstorms and lightening never materialised and apart from a couple of “Flying Gazebos”, the day went off without a hitch.
John Skingsley of Willian was Host for the day and Mike Jeffreys of North Herts was in charge of keeping the whole thing on track.
In addition a Charity Bowls “Spider” game was held before lunch to raise money for the local Samaritans.
The eventual Gala winners were a Willian Team of Anne Kitchener, Brian Kitchener and Dave Maryan, seen here in the photo being presented with their trophies by John Skingsley.

Runners up were Robin Edmett and friends from North Herts.
