Roll up for the Stuart Earl Memorial Trophy

Wed 3rd April 2019 at 19.00 - 22.00

Egerton Park Indoor Bowls Centre

Rotarians from Senlac, Battle, Bexhill and Hastings rolled up at the Egerton Park Indoor Bowls Centre, Bexhill, on Wednesday 3 April, in memory of the late Stuart Earl, a Senlac Rotarian and a champion of the Bexhill community.  In an event arranged by the Rotary Club of Senlac over 40 Rotarians took part in a fun bowls competition in which Bexhill Rotary Club, the largest contingent, challenged the other three clubs while a large number of guests watched the antics. For a number of the people taking part the art of bowling was in itself a challenge but they all took part in with determination, good spirit and hope. Competition was close with the result being decided on the last end to finish and Bexhill won by just two points.
Deidre Earl, Stuart’s widow, presented the new Stuart Earl Memorial Trophy to Graham Forster, President of Bexhill Rotary Club. Deidre, who was so happy to have been invited to do the presentation, welcomed the recognition of Stuart, “Stuart would have been so proud and pleased that the competition started by him is continuing and has been so well supported. It’s lovely to see so many people here to remember him and I’d be so happy to see this competition continue in future years.”
The Rotary Club of Senlac would like to thank the Egerton Park Indoor Bowls Club, the catering staff and Terry Hodd, the secretary, for their hospitality and help.
