HISTORICAL BOXFORD PRESS



Four of Boxford's lady bowlers in England team

Suffolk Free Press
11 May 1967

Last year Boxford Bowls Club hit the headlines when three of their lady members - Mrs. Hilda Rule, Mrs. Mary Riddleston, Mrs. Panks - were chosen to represent England. All three of them played so well they have again been chosen for the English team.

Now, believe it or not, yet another lady member, Mrs. Williams, of Lodge Farm Edwardstone, has been invited to play for England. This means that Boxford Bowls Club - which draws its members from Boxford and the neighbouring villages of Groton and Edwardstone and only 17 lady members - will be supplying one-sixth of the team chosen to represent this country.

This year the tournament in which teams from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales compete against each other is being held at Belfast from June 19-24
