We received the sad news that Rita Fenton passed away this morning. She had been unwell for quite a while and, although she had hoped to bowl indoors again this season, just wasn’t able to make it.
Rita & Martin devoted many, many hours to the club in a multitude of capacities. They were always very encouraging to new club members and bowlers and personally I learned a lot from them.
Another long term devoted Club member who held various committee positions was Jean Jacobs and she too has concluded her earthly life. I hope the bowls club in the sky has welcomed this new Ladies’ Pairs with as much as love as they gave and shared here.
Our thoughts, sympathies and love to Martin Fenton and family as well as both Jean’s daughter and family.
Jean’s funeral is on 23rd July. Details for Rita will be posted soon.
