Spring Fling: this has become an annual event for Bardsey Bowling Club, and is a very popular event. Members, family and some Collingham Bowling Club members were greeted warmly by chairman Ray Hill and sat down at beautifully decorated tables to a super meal. Mary Phillips and Rita Hill had worked hard to produce a cottage pie meal with the alternative of a fresh salad. In between courses Sue Moscrop and Maurice Kemp had organised horse racing, with members pulling wooden horses, which had been made a few years previously by Brian Moscrop, down the hall with shouts and encouragement for favourites. Desserts of cheescake or apple crumble were then served and people had the opportunity to talk about the forthcoming season. The Green opens on March 16, weather permitting.
