CAPTAIN’S v PRESIDENT’S DAY & STRAWBERRY TEA
Saturday 7th July 2019 was warm but overcast for our annual Fund Raising day for a charity chosen by
our President Bob Gammie. This year the charity was
Changing Pathways, a local charity supporting domestic
abuse victims. The day starts off with ‘The Spider’
where the jack is placed in the middle of the green,
members stand with one foot in the ditch and at a
signal all bowl together to see who can get nearest to
the jack, it was won this year by our Club Captains
grandson. As a visitor, well done. (or just luck?)

Unfortunately our President
could not be with us today
due to ill health so Rita
presented the ‘Trophy’ to
Steve who lead the
Captain’s team to victory.
The Trophy is a framed
piece of the second hand
carpet the Club started
bowling on in Hatfield
Peverel Village Hall in the
1990s. (see History)

bowls out at the end of ‘The Spider!

Club Captain and many helpers, thanks you to
you all for a splendid spread, thoroughly

day which made it a great
success, watched in the
background our Chairman
Another presentation was also made, not
connected with the day but important as
the teams in the South Essex Bowling
League were promoted from the third to
second division, well done as they proudly
receive their medals.
