Hatfield Peverel Bowling Club Special Memorial Day Competition, Saturday 9th November 2019
This is the second year of this competition in memory of three of our old and well respected members of our club who passed away within two months of each other. Chrissie Harris, one of our finest bowls and a lovely lady, Maurice Ball our long standing treasurer and Ron Jarvis who supported the club for many years with his dry sense of humour and his Friday night ‘drive’ competitions, all very sadly missed. Sandra Tolfrey who knew them all very well organised the event with precision planning, well done to her, supported by other members, many thanks. Sandra also mentioned other late members who have passed away recently, all remembered. This competition will now be held annually on remembrance weekend to honour and remember them and their lives.
Eight teams of four bowlers played three games of nine ends to find the team with the highest aggregate score, with breaks for coffee, lunch and afternoon tea at the end. A very happy way to celebrate our lost members who I am sure would have approved.
