Victoria Drive and Eastbourne Ladies Bowling Club annual lunch was held this year at the Chatsworth Hotel.

The afternoon included the presentation of the club’s many competition trophies.

Of particular note was the poignant presentation to Christine Vermeulen, the worthy winner of the ‘mixed singles match’.

The trophy, called the Sheila Sutton Cup, was donated by Christine’s family as a memorial to her late mother.

Sheila was a very successful bowler both in Eastbourne and the County and her memory is held with affection by all who knew her over the years.

Although the 2012 outdoor bowling season is now over, the club is busy planning the next Christmas Fayre.

It is due to be held on Saturday, December 1 at the club on Victoria Drive, next door to The Drive public house.

Everyone is invited to take part in this seasonal event.
