        HIGHLEY WELFARE BOWLS CLUB
                 Air Ambulance afternoon

As well as being a fun tournament, over two consecutive Sunday afternoons this popular event brings both Highley and Cleobury Clubs together to help raise some cash to help support the Midland Air Ambulance Service.

   Starting at 2pm, Highley held the first leg with a good turn out from both clubs, 52 bowlers taking part, every pair playing at least 4 games.
 The green ran superbly, a credit to both club and groundsman, Ron Smith.
 
 Halfway into the tournament we stopped for refreshments which were excellent.   

Before the semi final the raffle was drawn with many prizes  kindly donated by the Highley members.

The final was played over 8 ends between Ivor Lloyd (CM) and John Russell (H) against Phil Pack (CM) and John Smith (H) with Phil and John running out the eventual winners.
 All 4 finalists receiving a bottle of wine each.

Together with monies raised from a skittles evening at Chelmarsh Social club the final total raised was  £200 - Well Done everyone involved!
We now look forward to the second leg at Cleobury.  
 
Report by Phil Pack.

 

On Sunday 8th August the second leg of the Air Ambulance fund raiser took place at Cleobury Bowling Club. The weather stayed fine with the sun warming things up in the afternoon.
        Where possible the pairings were drawn with Cleobury bowlers playing with Highley bowlers and played, like last week, as a tournament organised by Phil Pack and John Cadwallader.
        Halfway through the proceedings we had refreshments, which were excellent, and followed by the raffle for the 25 prizes donated by members.
 Christine Lloyd suggested auctioning off the remaining 'fudge-cake', Eunice Williams gave the winning bid of £4 and got a free tin into the bargain. Well Done Eunice!.
 
 The tournament restarted and was played down to a semi-final followed by the final between
 Alan Sorrell(CM) and Pam Lacey(CM)  against Chris Cowdell(CM) and Mary Brown(H) 
After a closely fought match over 8 ends Chris and Mary ran out the winners, the score being 10-6
Each of the finalists received a bottle of wine as a prize. 

Photo's were taken in front of the pavilion which are now on the website.

All  competitors are to be congratulated for taking part.  A donation of £98 from the pensioners afternoon 'tea pot' was added to the money raised last week which comes to around £500.
Well Done everyone, see you all again next year.
