Severalls Jubilee Bowls Club marked the annual Closing of the Green on Sunday September 15th with a match between the ladies and gents. 28 members formed two rinks of triples and two rinks of four players per team. Some gents had to play on the ladies side, due to shortage in numbers. After 18 ends of competitive bowling and much light-hearted banter, the game itself was declared the winner, although the gents achieved a higher number of shots. Thanks were extended to Mr David Rees and his helpers for all the hard work to keep the green looking “fantastic throughout the season.” Members enjoyed tea and biscuits after the green officially closed and are looking forward to 2020 and a new season of bowling.
