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.

‘ As Captain of the Phoenix A Crown green bowling team I would like to congratulate everyone in the team for their support and achievement of winning the second division trophy for the second time and congratulations to Phoenix D for a hard fought battle and becoming runners up.’
After 4 years of Captaincy I will be handing over to Mike Bosson for the 2017 season.  I am sure he will do a fine job of running the team but I will still be there to give him any support he needs.
