Weston Pool League held their first presentation night in three years, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, after completing their season recently.

Teams that received trophies were given the option to have the money that would be spent on them donated to a Ukraine relief charity.

As a result a cheque for £1,100 was presented to Mayor James Clayton, who stayed for the whole evening, and congratulated all the winners.

Professional Jordan Shepherd and Jayne Townley, a local Magic Circle member who impressed with her close-up magic, were also in attendance.

The league has recently had a complete change of committee members, with new chairman Paul Penhale determined to make the presentation nights a more fun and interactive experience for all.

“The prospect of a presentation night used to be met with groans,” he said.

“But in future we hope it will be something to look forward to. Tonight was a big step forward, with a lot of fun had by all and plenty of great camaraderie all round.
