Sad News

To all members

Sadly I have just heard that Ken Acheson, who resigned from the Club early this season, passed away this morning after a short illness.

Ken was an affable gentleman, who enjoyed his bowling.

Our sincere sympathy to his wife, Pat and family.



Sad News

To all Members

It is with deep regret that I heard of the passing of Neville McNeill early this morning.

Neville was a longstanding and valued member of the Club.  He was, above all, a gentleman with a keen sense of humour.  He was a great conversationalist and enjoyed his cars. Neville loved his bowls and many of us will have admired his great spirit and determination to play in his latter days.  

 On behalf of the Club we offer our deepest sympathy to his dear wife Nancy and to Karen and the family circle.

Further details will follow.
