Bowls: The Burwash short mat bowls club had their annual general meeting last Monday evening. The members were all thanked for their continued support of the club and congratulated on finishing third in division one of the Wealden league, for which they received cash for the club and individual certificates. The committee for most part remains unchanged except for the treasurer which is now held by Martyn Casey. Grateful thanks to John Norton for his work as this for the past three years. Martyn’s appointment left a vacancy on the committee and this was filled by the election of Chris Ryan, we hope he will enjoy working with us.

The games were played in a round robin of five games for each player, for which they won 2 points for a win, 1 for a draw and one point for each end won. There were some great games played throughout the day, which was broken by a tasty hot lunch for everyone.
