Thank you to Jean Martin

THURSDAY Indoor Bowling Group:

 

Jean Martin has been providing the Thursday Indoor Bowlers with a good selection of refreshments over the past 6 years. 
To mark her achievements the Bowlers presented her with Flowers, Chocolates and Card signed by all her friends. Being a very competitive Bowler Jean is remaining with the group. 
Thanks for everything Jean, we all wish you a long and happy ‘retirement’ from the Kitchen.

In honour of this event, Jean requested that a percentage of surplus refreshment funds, carried forward from previous years, be donated to the deserving Donna Louise Charity, with the balance being used for the groups Christmas Raffle.
