FLIXTON Short Mat Bowls Club were recently declared the winners of the Waveney Short Mat Bowls League, with Carlton Colville taking runners-up place.

Their success this year in the league was tinged with a little sadness, as it has now been decided that the club is to disband before the new season begins. With this in mind, members and their partners got together for a celebratory meal. All the remaining members are joining other local short mat bowls clubs.

A club spokesman said: “If anyone is considering setting up short mat bowls in a hall, Flixton have all the equipment for sale, everything you need to start. It would be nice if it could be used to set up a new club.”

If you are interested please contact captain David Baker on 01986 782377.
