Sunday December 18th

The yearly turkey chase took place on a beautiful December morning. It was well attended with everyone wearing something relating to Christmas. The turkey crowns were won by Cindy Bedford with twenty one shots and Ian Hamilton with twenty shots. The eggs were won by June Young who played her first game of bowls since having her knee replacement, well done June!! and Les Bounds. Thank you to Joan and Chris Harding, Les and Sue Bounds who donated the turkey crowns, Julia and Ian Hamilton who donated the eggs and of course the chickens. Chris thanked Joan, Sue and Howie for as usual organising the

Turkey Chase. Also thank you to Lynda Saunders who donated her winnings from the bonus ball to the Club.


On Christmas morning about twelve members organised a roll up which was enjoyed by all who attended. After the roll up they were joined by more members and enjoyed Christmas lunch and drinks at the Belfry.
