THE winter saw the indoor short mat bowls at North Tawton Bowling Club.

The club’s indoor league sides, run by Gordon Denham, have had a busy winter with mixed results but the enjoyment levels were high.

At the club’s general meeting proposals were put forward for the coming summer of 2020 with new accommodation for visiting teams plus storage for vital green equipment.

The green maintenance by Robert Arscott and Dave Cooper continues at great pace and thanks to them was given by the members.

However the main event saw Gordon Denham awarded Life Membership of the Club.

Club president Mike Thwaites said: ‘This is awarded to very few people but in Gordon’s case was well deserved as he was club secretary who over saw the funding and building of our new club house.’

Gordon now moves over to fixture secretary and Anita Lamey steps up to the mat as new club secretary.
