  The Group for Charity Day  

Well the weather could not have been kinder,
The beer was absolutely cool and refreshing.
The lunch was top drawer - superb.
The administration faultless.
Now there was something else?
Yes thats it -
Keen and competitive bowling to go with it.

Below are just a few photos taken on the day.
