Busy start to season for Keynsham Bowling Club
Published on: 07 Jun 2013
Thirty members of Keynsham Bowling Club recently competed for the Ray Percival Trophy.
They were split into 10 teams and played one another over a day to establish the winning team.
Ray served the bowling club in many capacities but particularly as chairman for five years, retiring in 2004. After he passed away in 2005 his widow Beryl donated a shield for a competition to be played in his memory.
The picture shows the winning team, from the left, Derek Phelps, Roy Wilton and Mike Barrow receiving the shield from the club’s vice president Hazel Waldon.
At the start of the season the ladies’ and gents’ captains chose the Motor Neurone Disease Association as the club’s charity for the year in memory of much-respected member Dave Shaw, who passed away last year.
A concert by the Avon and Somerset Constabulary Male Voice Choir and the Tenby Male Choir at St John’s Church stewarded by bowling club members raised £1,750 and a cheque was presented to the charity on May 1.
