Presentation Night

A good turnout of 54 members had a very enjoyable evening on Friday at the Ringwood Conservative Club.

After a lovely meal, of either pork, beef, Salmon or Vegetable Lasagne the entertainment got under way.

The Main Quiz followed by Playing Card Bingo, the Music Quiz and the raffle preceded the Presentation of Trophies, by our President Sharon, to those Winners and Runners-Up who were present on the night.

It is with great sadness that I have to report that Dave Smith passed away on on the 26th September after a long period of illness. Dave was a renowned bowler at Ringwood as well as at other clubs and was very active in running affairs at Ringwood, latterly as Secretary and also as 2nd & 3rd Teams Captain. He will be very much missed and our deep condolences go out to Sue and all his family and friends. 

Dave's funeral will take place at Bournemouth Crematorium on Friday 18th October at 11.00am and then afterwards at The London Tavern, Poulner.
