JULIE BOWLS MIKE OVER
Holsworthy Bowling Club was delighted to help celebrate the wedding of two of our members recently. The weather was superb and the Bride (Julie Brown) and the Groom (Mike Prosser) were joined by Julie’s daughters and their husbands; Claire Foster-Bull and Matt, Jodi Foster-Lake and Ken plus two friends Jenny and Rob Healey. The wedding group joined club members in an hour of bowls before the wedding tea held in the clubhouse where members toasted the newlywed couple and gave them best wishes for the future.
Julie and Mike met five years ago in Lymington, Hampshire and after a walk amongst the New Forest ponies realised that the chemistry was definitely there. A little while later they decided to make their permanent home in North Devon.
After two years in Fremington they moved to Holsworthy and their bowling journey began. They played a short time in the outdoor season last year and progressed to Short Mat bowls through the winter.
After Mike’s proposal to Julie whilst holidaying in the Canary Islands the Wedding Day was set for 27 May.
Because of such a warm welcome received from the club members in the early days they wanted to involve them in their wedding festivities. They decided to have a wedding reception in the Clubhouse so their family, friends and club members could enjoy an afternoon of bowling fun and share and enjoy their Special Day.
