HISTORICAL BOXFORD PRESS
Boxford Bowls Club
Suffolk Free Press
30 April 1970
The lady members of Boxford bowls club are not only very good bowlers, they are also remarkably successful in raising money for their club.
The necessity has arisen due to the fact that their old motor mower which has rendered signal service for many years has reached retirement age and the purchase of a new one is imperative.
Last week the ladies organised a jumble sale at the village hall and provided an excellent tea. The result? a profit of £42.
On Monday evening they held a solo and darts evening at The Fleece. On this occasion Mrs. Hilda Rule provided the refreshments and another £27 was collected.
Altogether since January these ladies have raised no less than £109 and this is likely to be added to by a dance to be held at The Fleece on Friday, May 1 - and what better day to hold it on - for which a well known band has been engaged.
That new mower can't be very far off.
