Hesketh Park had their Annual Christmas afternoon on
Sunday 15th December.

Members were entertained by Ray Johnston on the keyboard playing

Christmas carols which everyone sung along to.

A special treat was a performance from member Pauline Griffin

who did Burlington Bertie and was dressed appropriately.

There were sausage rolls, mince pies and nibbles all washed down by mulled wine.

A big thank you to Jackie Amess for the lovely mulled wine and to all the other members who supplied food to make it a great afternoon.

Hesketh Park Bowls Club would like to wish all the members and their families a

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year for 2020.

Message from Roy Wood

Matches played Saturday 8th Bexley Park &
Sunday 9th Horton Kirby September 2019

Hi All

What a good weekend it was!!!

A win at home against Bexley Park giving us 9 points was followed by a superb win away at Horton Kirby, 8 points. At the moment we are sitting in 6th place in the league and a win away at Halls in 2 weeks could see us reach the dizzy heights of 4th place, (here's hoping).

So a massive well done to all who took part, (including super sub Carmen who turned up to cheer us on), and thank you to the ladies for their support in these games.

I attach a photo below of the back drop to the Horton Kirby game which is one of my favourites of the grounds we visit.


More news tomorrow!

Thank You
