Betty Britten Returns to the Club
Long time member and champion bowler at Sorrento Bowls Club, Betty Britten returned to the Clubhouse on December 5 to attend a first birthday party for her youngest great grand child, Sadie! One of Betty's 16 great grandchildren!).
Around 60 joined the celebrations while enjoying barefoot bowls on a perfect Sunny afternoon.
Betty will be fondly remembered by many members who played pennant with her over several years as well as indoor bowls over many Winters.
Betty now lives at Kilsyth - closer to several members of her family while her many achievements out on the rinks are acknowledged on several of the Club's honour boards.
Pictured is Betty with grandson Steve, wife Hayley and baby Sadie.
Stephanie's hen's party was a glamour event with all the girls dressed to the hilt for a fun time with barefoot bowls at Sorrento recently.
