South Woodford celebrate reaching 60 not out

Bowls club mark Diamond anniversary

South Woodford Bowls Club used a recent club drive to celebrate the club’s 60th anniversary and over 40 members turned out on five rinks to signify the importance of the milestone.

Players young and old were there for the day, including three of the club’s real veterans. Joan Franklin and Margaret Sanders are still having roll-ups into their nineties, while also there on the day was Len Hills, who has turned 100!

The winners on what was a very enjoyable afternoon were Adriene Hughes, one of South Woodford’s new bowlers for the ladies and the experienced Peter Barham for the men.

Club president Carol Beesley presided over the day and chair Sheila Martin organised the catering.
