We welcomed three new members to the club at our September meeting having voted at a
special EGM the previous month to increase the membership limit to 70.
It was announced that the summer season outdoor bowling would draw to an end at the end
of the month with the indoor session commencing in the Yoxall Hall in Haslington on 18 th
October each Wednesday afternoon. Due to the limit of three mats in the hall, a waiting list
has had to be created for potential new bowlers.
The speaker this month was one of our new members, Eddie Timmins, whose topic was Life
in Business. It turned out to be an entertaining autobiography of Eddie whose entrepreneur
instincts began as a schoolboy buying and sell bicycles and moved on to cars and then
heavy vehicles. His passion, not surprisingly for a Sandbach man, was for Foden trucks
having owned and restored many of the older classic models. The vote of thanks was given
by Joe Wilson, another Foden enthusiast.
