After the presentation a splendid buffet was enjoyed which was followed by a disco.

Flowers were presented to Margaret Wood wife of our President, To Maureen Frost, and Betty Bayes Vice President.


It has been decided that due to the delicate state of some of our perpetual trophies, that at the end of the presentation evening ALL perpetual trophies will be retained by the league, this will save the league having to charge individuals / Teams for repairs should any of the trophies become damaged.
