South Grafton women’s bowls Christmas party

Well, what a beautiful day we had to hold our Christmas Party and final day of bowls for 2021, we found it to be a trying and very hard year trying to organise events with restrictions being placed on numbers and distancing, but we got through it, which goes to prove if everybody pulls together you can achieve a lot. Thank you to one and all.


Winning team: Joan Gebetsberger; Glenys Wallbridge; Rebecca Dennis.  

Lucky Rink: Enid McKew; Margaret Sales; Carol Thompson. Encouragement award: Ella Whitford; Pam Lollback; Helen Smith.

Best hat: Heather Nichols.

Best dress: Carol Thompson.

Spiders: Colleen Kane; Enid McKew; Pam Harvey; Joan Gebetsberger.

Lucky door: Phyllis Knox; Denise McLachlan; Gwen Ryan; Betty Essex.

The two competition tables were full to overflowing, thank you to all for bring along the donations for this table, there were just far too many winners to mention them all, but congratulations to all and we hope you enjoy your prizes.

A lovely meal was prepared by our Social Committee led by Phyllis Knox and what a meal it was, you could not fault one thing about it, and the sweets were just to die for, this was all followed by a Christmas cake which was made by Col & Narelle Wiblen, and we had the pleasure of our Patron and Life Member Val Wood present to cut the cut, ably assisted by long-time member Gwen Ryan.

On behalf of President Joan and the Committee members I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year and look forward to welcoming you all back for Australia Day.
