Bute’s annual indoor open bowls tournament reached a climax at Rothesay Bowling Club last Friday.

With Rothesay Pavilion, the competition’s usual venue, closed for refurbishment, there had been some concern that the tournament might not go ahead this year, but thanks to the hard work of all involved and the use of facilities at Rothesay Bowling Club, Ardbeg Bowling Club and Rothesay Bowling Club, the event went ahead as smoothly as ever.

This year’s winners and runners-up were as follows.

Mixed pairs - winners Helen Wood and Jimmy Burke; runners-up Julie and John Gilchrist.

Ladies’ pairs - winners Mavis Knowles and Violet Westland; runners-up Helen Wood and Agnes Connell.
