“A few members worked very hard, and the teas were the usual high standard. Thanks also to the members of other local bowling clubs for supporting the event. May I give a special mention to Andrew Broll and Davie Keith (Decorators) and Gary Huxtable (Galloway Plumbing Services) for sponsoring the event, and for their continued support of Sorbie Bowling Club.”
