Trophies decided at St Andrew's

ST ANDREW'S enjoyed summer conditions for their last game of the season.

ST ANDREW'S enjoyed summer conditions for their last game of the season. Captains' Day closed the season with 40 members bowling their last woods on the home green this year.

The Bowls Drive was won by Jane Smith and Tony Main, and this was followed by a buffet meal. The two captains, Mrs. Margaret Wride and Mr. Graham Burgess made short speeches of thanks to everyone who had provided St Andrew's with such a successful year. Trophies were then presented to the winners and losers of the Club Championships. A great day was had by all.

And, now, it's on into the Indoor season. With three indoor rinks, there are plenty of opportunities at St Andrew's for everyone, including new members, to enjoy their bowls. There are no changes regarding indoor membership fees; they remain at �35 per year for playing members, with juniors and social members at �5 per year. Everyone is welcome.

The club had good weather for Finals Day. Many of the matches were close, none more so than the men's triples final which went to an extra end to decide the winners. Congratulations to everyone who took part.
