Sad News

To all members, Sadly, we announce the passing of Charlie Costley’s mother, Tillie, peacefully at hospital early this morning. 

Tillie, was a member of the Ladies Section at Knockdene, having joined in 1963.  

She was Lady President in 1983 and was an accomplished bowler, representing the Club in many competitions, winning:

1980 and 1985 NIWPGL Pairs Championship with L. Simpson

1980  Irish National Pairs Championship with L. Simpson

1981  British Isles Pairs Championship with L. Simpson

She delivered the first bowl at the Opening of our present Green in 2016.

Those members in the Club who played with Tillie remember her as a quiet, gentle lady who always encouraged new bowlers.

To Charlie, and the entire family circle, we send our deepest sympathy and hope that the happy memories of her long life will sustain them at this sad time. 

For your information: A Service of thanksgiving for the life of Matilda (Tillie) Costley is to be held at

 the Moravian Church, University Rd Belfast BT7 1NA at 12:30 p.m. on Monday 3rd April,

 followed by a private family committal at Roselawn Cemetery.
