SAD NEWS

The club sadly lost one of its members, Denis White.

Denis was a great character and often entertained people on and off the green.

Denis was a great supporter of the Tilehurst bowls club, he did a huge amount for the club and he will never be forgotten.

All our thoughts are with the White family at this sad time.
