Bowls – Adelaide Hough Sheild

Twelve of our members competed for the Adelaide Hough Shield on Monday 10th June. Adelaide was a leading member of our bowls team for some years until ill-health prevented her from continuing. She donated this Sheild in 1991, and this was the 34th year the competition has been held – last year we had to abandon it because of torrential rain.

This year, despite a very bad forecast, we were lucky with the weather with only one short spell of fairly light rain. It was particularly good to welcome Ann C and Eileen – who haven’t played bowls before – but proved to be very good at it!

The winner was Ann T, Janet P came 2nd and Pat G 3rd. Well done Ann, you retained the shield after winning in 2022. As always we are indebted to Joan P, a former member, who organised the ‘Round Robin’ tournament for us. It is lovely that she still helps us out, always with a smile!
