Village Match 2nd Sept 2018

Another glorious sunny day saw the annual village match contested by 12 teams representing various community organisations within the village.
 
Most of the contestants were in general "non bowlers" but the standard of bowling was incredible. Everyone seemed to enjoy the afternoon and joined in the fun with zeal.
 
The afternoon started with a "spider" competition followed by the competition in earnest which was won for the second year running by the team from "The Plough".
 
A total of £136.00 was raised from the raffle and sales of tea and biscuits which was presented to Peter Teather in support of the "Community Responder Scheme", our annual nominated charity. Peter hopes to set up a defibrillator training session at the bowls club sometime in the near future to which all are invited. Anyone interested can register with Marilyn Tarbox at any time who will coordinate with Peter and his team in choosing a suitable date. This will be a most interesting and very important event which will give everyone an insight and knowledge of what to do in the case of an emergency and how to use the equipment situated at various strategic places around the village.
 
Many thanks to all who took part in supporting the event and a special thanks to the ladies who worked all afternoon supplying the tea and biscuits and to Tony Williams for the seamless organisation.

I wish to convey my heartfelt thanks to all the members of Farnsfield Bowling Club and the bowling fraternity in general for all their support, both before, during and after Vic’s funeral and the celebration of his life held in Farnsfield St.Michaels Church.

It was a wonderful tribute to Vic to see so many of you at the service, Vic would have been so proud. Thank you all for your kind thoughts and the most generous donations.

Bless you all,

Norma.
