A north Norfolk nonagenarian has hung up her bowling ball, after 20 years of playing with Pinewood Park Indoor Bowls Club.
Bunty Hebenton, 95, (pictured) joined the club when it opened in 1989, quickly becoming a first-rate player. She had planned to retire from indoor bowling last season, but was persuaded to stay on by team captain Brenda Foskett, who said. 'Bunty really is a remarkable woman and she is an amazing player, which boosted our team tremendously.'
The club, which meets on Wednesday afternoons, laid on a special tea to mark Bunty's final game. 'Fortunately, our team won, so Bunty had a good send-off,' Foskett said.
Although she will no longer be playing indoors, Bunty, who lives at Holt, plans to continue bowling outside at Mill Farm, Upper Sheringham.
