We have had several lucky winners recently. Everyone has now paid their stakes up to 15th September, and some have paid in advance for the next 10 week cycle. The next payments are therefore due 16th September and ten-weekly thereafter. As we are approaching the winter season could you try to remember to send your stakes to Celia (Cheques payable to “St Ippolyts Bowls Club”).
We still have some unused numbers, please talk to Celia if you are interested. It is a good fundraiser and should this year raise approximately £650.
