Winscombe Bowls Club held a dinner to celebrate the end of the indoor and short mat season.

The annual dinner to celebrate the end of the indoor and short mat season took place in Winscombe Bowls Club pavilion for the first time.

Unfortunately, organiser of both events, Wilf Ainsworth, could not attend. However, his wife Angela, stood in as guest of honour and received a gift from club captain Malcolm Dorrington in appreciation of Wilf’s organising skills.

In the Thursday Indoor League, a good season was had by all with the Badgers holding the lead by a good margin for most of the season.

For the last few weeks, the Minks, Otters and the Squirrels battled for second place, with the Otters claiming second spot, followed by the Minks.
