Bowling Club

Last Sunday evening we had a procession of around 300 people leave Dollar Park and arrive at the club with a lantern. The lanterns had the names of all those lost in Afghanistan. The lanterns were laid out to make the number 453 which was the number of British military killed in Afghanistan. An amazing tribute from all who attended. Lost but never forgotten.
