AGM

The 2021 AGM was well-attended, particularly in view of the preceding late night for many at the Presentation Dinner Dance! Outgoing President Brian Russell thanked the General & Social Committees, and also the members, for all the extra effort put in over the course of the last two Covid-struck years to keep the club not only alive but thriving. He also thanked members for their generosity in raising a grand total of £1500 for his chosen charity, Guide Dogs for the Blind. He finished by welcoming the incoming President Rosemary Westcott (pictured) who closed the meeting with a flourish!

Presentation Dinner Dance

The Presentation Dinner Dance was held at the Royal British Legion club in Surbiton. A splendid 3-course meal was provided by the catering team there, led by Auriol President Brian Russell's daughter Lyn and husband Tony, and served by friendly and enthusiastic waiting staff, several of whom were also members of Brian's family.

Trophies were presented to championship winners by Brian Russell, assisted by Club & Competitions Secretary Jan Kentish, and certificates handed out to the losing finalists.

Music for dancing was provided by club member James Rayne, back by popular demand, and a really good evening was had by all.

Our photos show the trophy presentations to the club 2021 Singles Champions Brenda Lisney and Brian Russell. Other photos from the presentations can be seen in the Picture Gallery.

Auriol Triumph in the Carol Shannon Trophy

At Sutton & District Bowling Association Finals Day Di Newman, Rosemary Wilman and Doreen Weight overcame Epsom in a match that was decided on the last end, Auriol scoring 2, to achieve their 19-18 victory. To reach the final the club met Cheam Fields, Ashtead and Sutton. With 10 clubs represented in the finals there was a good number of spectators, and the support of Louis Pelosi and Vic Saunders was much appreciated by the players.

The Carol Shannon Trophy is a new Sutton & District Ladies Triples knock-out competition, to run alongside the existing Arthur Hughes Triples Trophy for men. The Shannon family donated the trophy in memory of their mother who died in 2019, aged 90. She had been very involved in bowling and its organisation locally for many decades.
