After a rewarding and successful season, members of Chelford Ladies Bowls Club, have been busily involved in the concluding rounds of the ever popular Cup and Rose Bowl competitions. This week the semi finals and finals were held in a friendly, but competitive spirit with participants demonstrating considerable bowling skills, often in difficult weather conditions.
On Tuesday 3rd September, the Cup semi finals were held between Gwynneth Shemilt and Helen Bilsborough and Sue Couling and Sue Grasby. The resulting winners Helen Bilsborough and Sue Couling, then met in the final in front of strong support from members. Helen Bilsborough came out on top and was presented with the Cup at the conclusion of play.
The semi finals and final of the Rose Bowl were held on Wednesday 4th September. In the first semi final, Patsy Howlett beat Mavis Williams and in the second semi, Margaret Walley overcame Pauline Hallam.
In an exciting and very close final, which lasted 32 ends, Patsy Howlett triumphed over Margaret Walley 21-19. Both bowlers played some exceptional ends with high quality bowling, often in pouring rain. It was a fitting finale to an excellent competition.
The Rose Bowl was presented by President Judith Shirley (see picture). Shown in the picture left to right, semi finalist Pauline Hallam, finalist Margaret Walley, President Judith Shirley, Rose Bowl winner Patsy Howlett and semi finalist Mavis Williams.
