Peggy Bur­ton On Satur­day morn­ing the fu­neral of Peggy Bur­ton took place in St John’s Church. Peggy was a well known lady with many at­tend­ing the ser­vice. The mourn­ers in­cluded mem­bers of Castle­hill Bowl­ing Club where Peggy was at one time lady president and her skill at the game won her many ti­tles in­clud­ing the club’s Ladies Cham­pi­onship.
