Bowl­ing along: Long-time Mata­mata man Ge­orge Wil­liams was an avid spec­ta­tor at last week’s 49th open Mata­mata Men’s Com­bined Clubs Bowls Tour­na­ment. Mr Wil­liams re­called play­ing in the first event, then ev­ery year un­til he re­tired from the greens five years ago. Now 95 – al­most 96 – Mr Wil­liams, pic­tured at the fi­nal day at Rewa, hasn’t lost his love of the sport.
