PRESIDENT’S Day at Market Overton Bowls Club usually has a few unusual items on the agenda and this year’s event was no different.

More than 30 bowlers arrived in fancy dress with some ingeneous ideas on show, and the half a dozen who did not arrive in costume willingly donating £5 to a fundraising kitty for Papworth Heart Hospital.

Club president Jonny Abbott ensured a happy band of bowlers enjoyed a sunny afternoon on the green where the bowling was really an aside as players attempted to cope in their unusual attire.

A superb meal was provided by the ladies led by Barbara Smith and Marge Hunt, and a multi-prize raffle completed proceedings.
