Over seventy members and guests attended the Rushden Town Band Club skittles dinner and dance held at the club on Friday
A pewter tankard was presented to the team on behalf of Lants, Ltd., mineral water manufacturers, by Mr. W. Vaughan, a representative of the firm.
Among the club's achievements were the "A" team's victory in the Rushden, Wellingborough and Kettering Area Club Skittles Union competition and the winning of the Rushden individual championship by their captain, Mr. G. Voss, with Mr. J. Brittain, runner-up.
On Saturday the team travelled to Bedford to meet Northampton Brayfield in the County final and added another victory by winning the championship.
At Northampton on May 7 Mr. Voss will compete in the final for the Pepper Cup, and Mr. Brittain will be among the last four for the throw-off for the Gold Watch.
