Rainbow whist and Studying the balance sheet

The AGM held on Saturday morning 1st Feb in the Bowlers Pavilion was attended by a record fifty-two members. The second record of the day was at lunch time when over fifty enjoyed either Meat Balls or Chilli served with Jacket Potatoes followed by an assortment of crumbles and lce cream. Rainbow Whist led by Ken was played throughout the afternoon. I am sure everyone will agree that it was a busy but very enjoyable day and a delight to see so many members.
