TONY'S NEWSLETTER JUNE 2022
COFFE MORNING SATURDAY 4TH JUNE &
JUBILEE CELEBRATIONS ON SUNDAY 5TH JUNE
Coffee morning at Subscription Bowling Club on Saturday was a little quieter than of late, but there was still the usual abundance of prizes in the raffle draw with almost everyone taking something home with them. David Balfour had the lucky ticket in the joker draw and this time the joker card at last revealed itself, David happily scooping the grand prize.
The coffee morning was really just a foretaste for the main event which was to follow on Sunday, the Platinum Jubilee Garden Party. Starting at 12.00 noon there was much to admire in the decorated hat competitions, the Jubilee cake competition and the photos of members long ago quiz, all were on display in majestic and magnificent splendour.
At 2.00pm a game of bowls commenced, and instead of the usual jumble the Cypriot game was played, four rinks of seven players were competing for the prize, the winner of each rink met in a final which was won by Rick Gallagher who defeated David Balfour, Kevin Hodgson and Maureen Charlton. During the game the competition judges were busy trying to agree on the winners.
After the faith tea Vice President Tony Jackson thanked everyone for attending and complimented the members on their nationalistic costumes, as the bower was awash with a sea of red, white and blue. He congratulated all who had taken part in the competitions, acknowledging the time, the effort and the originality they had used in creating such wonderful examples of style and beauty. The winner of the best decorated hat was Christine Whitfield with husband David winning the best hat for an event which happened during the Queen’s reign, the event being the 1966 England world cup winning team. The best Jubilee cake was the one made by Anne Coulthard and the winner of the photo competition was Rick Gallagher.
There were many bottles and other goodies on offer in the raffle draw and the money raised from this and all the other events was supplemented by the auctioning of some of the cakes which helped to boost the amount raised over the day. Lol Kelly thanked Anne Coulthard for her hard work in organising the days events and this was enthusiastically applauded.
