I recently received some "historic documents" from Fred Embleton, the outgoing Secretary, there was a members listing from 1989, showing there were 89 male members and 57 ladies, of these only 7 men and 4 lady members are still at the club, quite remarkable.

The final event of this year was the Presentation Evening, held Saturday 10th November, as usual it was a very enjoyable evening, with trophies and prize monies presented to those present by Peter and Elaine the Club Captain and Lady Captain respectively, the photo above shows the winners who attended.

A new trophy for the Men's Pairs was presented it was "The Fred Embleton Shield" recently purchased in recognition of Fred's time as Secretary of The Cheshunt Bowls Club.
