The club celebrated the Andy Ward day on the Sunday after closing day. Andy was a hugely popular character and as a tribute to him, we celebrated by having a day of bowls which was full of laughter, fun and a few memories. All of the players had a great day, and we have some photos of some of the more entertaining moments of the day... 

Look at this lot...... as soon as they see a camera, they think they are superstars
