Vegetation key to minimising landslip risk

The impacts of landslides have been a little lost in the conversations around the devastating floods that took place in the Northern Rivers in February and March this year, but it is essential that we recognise the impact they have had, and will continue to have.

Sherril Pearce had the best of the day, beating Lorraine ‘Blossom’ McCormick 25–12 to win the open singles championship of the Brunswick Heads Women’s Bowls Club last week.

Sherril took off into the lead early, and unfortunately for Blossom she wasn’t able to keep pace after getting stuck on a score of five for eight ends.

Blossom then launched a great fight-back and made it into double figures, but it was not strong enough to catch Sherril, who finished with a comfortable win.

‘It’s all on the day, and the day was Sherril’s,’ Club Secretary Kerry Dexter said.
