The Fun and Friendship day held by Brunswick Heads Women’s Bowling Club on the morning of Tuesday 16 May was a huge success.

‘We had 16 guests plus a visit of 10 ladies from Red Rock (near Coffs Harbour) bowling club and 14 of our own members, a total of 40 women on the green,’ publicity officer Kerry Dexter said.

‘So much fun was had that it is decided to do it again next year’.

We would like to thank Terry Daly Pharmacy at Brunswick Heads for sponsoring the day.
