Nineteen members from Oakley have just returned from a very enjoyable 5 day break playing at the Dorset Golf and Bowls resort as part of Bowls Hampshire's 10th mini tour to the Dorset. So popular is this tour that of the 61 people attending most were return visitors and as usual, the accommodation, food and hospitality was first class. It was a successful week for the Oakley rink of Mary and Terry Varndell and Barbara and Bob Goodyear which, for the second successive year won the tournament with their only defeat coming to another Oakley rink skipped by Hugh Aherne. The Presentation evening saw prizes being awarded to the tournament winners and to those who had participated in the putting and wedge bowling competitions which raised £140 for Kay, the organiser's, chosen charity, the Alzheimer's Society. The evening concluded with Past President Maxeen Fletcher making a presentation to Kay for organising the event.
