Hallowe’en games and prize pumpkins
First time player Steve Powell won our Hallowe’en themed tournament on October 28. Twenty one runners provided a £210 pot, which first place took £84, second place Joe Winter £63, third place Perivale Tony£42 and Nick Jeffery fourth and £21. ‘Twas a cracker of pumpkins, lollipops, jelly fangs and other tat provided by Poundland.

Our bubble was Sandie Cresdee.
