After retiring 5 years ago Bernard and Rachael Perry sought a common and equal interest
and joined Lancaster Avenue Bowls Club as complete beginners. They were warmly welcomed
to the Club and taught how to play. Now they almost swept the board with their trophy
winnings at the Club’s annual Finals Day held over the weekend
Rachel won the Ladies singles, Open singles, and the Lancaster Cup, husband Bernard
won the Two Woods cup. Together they won the Mixed Pairs competition. In addition,
their team of 4 won the Friday Triples competition held throughout the season. Bernard
said we have enjoyed our success this year, especially Rachel, but the warmth and
friendliness we have received from club members matters much more.
The Men’s Singles was won by Malcolm Beeney, the Handicap Tournament by Jude Thompson
and the Drawn Pairs, David Crumplin and Peter Webster. A Charity event was held
during the season raising £392 for Woodlands School.
Playing outdoor bowls the season is almost over but the club has social events during
the winter and anyone interested in joining the club should contact David Caspall,
