NOW THAT the bowling season is under way again, it is appropriate to look back at an event which took place over 25 years ago.
Mrs June Martin, a member of the Newgate Bowling club ladies’ section, completed a one-mile sponsored swim at Arbroath Sports Centre pool to raise funds for her club which celebrated its golden jubilee in 1987. She realised the magnificent total of £141. Our picture shows June with her group of vocal supporters at the pool. They are, from left - Rae Perkins, Rosemary Spink, June Martin, Irene Craig, Minnie Hadden, Jessie Hay, Ruth Young, Helen Burnett and Daisy Beattie.
