Tuesday 14th June – Bowls – Northwich Probus v Knutsford Rex Probus

Northwich play their home games at the beautiful setting of Great Budworth Bowling Club. The matches are played with a 10:00am start on what was probably the best morning of the summer so far. Northwich prefer to play the shorter match format to that normally played by Knutsford. The format however was no advantage to the home side as the Knutsford visitors took an impressive 66 to 25 victory.

Next Wednesday Knutsford Rex entertain Tatton Probus at their home green at Knutsford Bowling Club, 2pm start.

Thursday 10th June – Club Meeting – Speaker, David Simmons, who gave a talk entitled ‘Eric ‘Winkle’ Brown’.

David outlined Eric Brown’s life and legendary career as the Navy’s Chief Test Pilot where he played a key role in the design and flight-testing of an entire generation of aircraft. His fearlessness and ability to remain calm in the face of danger pushed the boundaries of landing faster and heavier aircraft on aircraft carriers. His wartime experiences were fraught with danger and his fluency in German resulted in him helping to liberate Bergen-Belsen concentration camp and interrogating Hermann Goering and other members of the Nazi regime. A remarkable life.
