The annual presentation night dinner saw some of the top players from the St Nicholas Bowls Club awarded with medals and cups in recognition of their successes in a number of in-house competitions.

The winners on the night included Andy Richmond, who won the open singles competition and Sylvia Meredith, winner of the ladies singles competition.

Other awards went to the runners up in the competitions, as well as to the winners of the triples and the fours.

Competitions captain, Sylvia Meredith, said: 'All those present enjoyed the evening and friends and family had come to support the trophy and medal winners, some of whom had won awards in the past and some - including both the singles winners - were cup winners for the first time.'
