The end of the bowls season is always celebrated with a challenge to all Whitley WI bowlers to win the Aldelaide Hough Trophy. This prestigious award was given to Whitley by Adelaide (a former member) and this was the 27th year that it has taken place.
What a fabulous day with the weather being really kind. Congratulations must go to Ann Tolson (who was also the 2016 winner) in winning the Trophy closely followed by 3 runners up, Jenny Roberts, Mary Highmore and Sue Burtonwood. (photo shows triumphant Ann T with organiser Joan P)
Everyone contributed to the to sumptuous buffet which we all enjoyed at the end of the match. Thanks to Joan P for organising the match. Unfortunately Adelaide could not be there to present the cup today, so Joan P did the honours.
