Meanwhile the St Patricks Day bowls tournament was well supported with a full green of bowlers, with many visitors. The annual event was  as usual very colourful especially with many participants dressed for the St Paddy’s day theme.

On the social side, the best dressed  theme competition for the occasion was won by (man) Alistair Carter and (lady) Sue Le Compte.
