Chorley Group bowls competition

It was a glorious sunny day for a game of bowls. The venue for the annual Chorley and District Group Bowls Competition was the Rivington Village Bowling Club. Nestled on the north embankment of the Rivington Reservoir, the Rivington Bowling Club, bar and tea room is steeped in local history at the heart of this area of outstanding natural beauty. There is no better place to enjoy a few ends of bowls.

The competition was fierce with the eventual results being:

The Leonard Holt Trophy for the ladies was won by Kath Schofield after a hard fought game with Cheryl Hicks.

The Oliver Hart Challenge Trophy was won by Pete Schofield, coming from behind to beat Ray Wilkinson who received the James Greeley Memorial Cup.

The raffle was won by Pamela Lockett.

Peter Lockett Chairman of Chorley and District Group of Lodges and Chapters said that it had been a very enjoyable day. Peter thanked all those who had been involved in organising the competition and congratulated the winners.

Competitors and spectators retired to the bar to round off a very enjoyable day.
