Nutley bowled over by match day’s fundraising success


Sixteen invited teams took part in a major fund-raising match at Nutley Bowls Club on Sunday, July 13.

Spokesman Mike Evans said: “We all enjoyed a splendid day bowling on a well prepared green on a near perfect day. In spite of the threat of rain we only had one very brief shower despite the presence of a number of dark, threatening clouds.”

Finalists were Mary Hough and her Crusaders team against last year’s winner Jim Read and his Rioja Ravers but on this occasion Mary’s team ran out as clear winners.

Mike congratulated the winners but also all the teams for such a good day of quality bowling.

He added: “The day went like clockwork thanks to the splendid organisation by Peter Lambert. Peter, as scorer, was ably assisted by Sandy. As usual the catering was up to the expected high standard thanks to the efforts of Liz Lloyd, June Lambert and their many volunteers before and on the day.”

The bar was run by Keith Wilson and the raffle was well supported thanks to Tony Smith ‘doing his best to legally extract as much money as possible from the visitors’.

Ted Rowley operated the total shots on the day competition.
