Twenty members of Epping Bowls Club competed for the club’s annual mixed pairs competition which took place on Saturday 17th August.

This event was sponsored by Daniel Robinson & Sons, a local independent family funeral director which has supported this event over many years.

The competition brought together ten pairs, drawn in two groups of five. Each pair played four games of eight ends against each pair in their group. This produced two overall winners from each group, who played each other in a ten-end final.

In an absorbing match Brenda Warner and Matthew Jones won 11-7 against Margaret Hopkinson and Sonny Hart.

Prizes of hampers and goodies were presented by Seamus Setterfield, funeral manager, who said: “It’s always a pleasure to support Epping Bowls Club which has a long-established history in Epping. This event is always strongly contested, and this year was no different.”

Ron Perryman, Men’s captain, said: “We are grateful for continued support from Daniel Robinson & Sons for helping to make this an impressive event. Everyone who took part had an enjoyable day.”
