Professional lawn bowls champion and Commonwealth games gold medal winner Willie Wood, MBE, made a guest appearance at a recent Sports reminiscence session in the John Gray Centre, Haddington. Pictured here with just some of his many medals, Willie was delighted to share some of his memories with members of the group. They’ve also enjoyed the company recently of twins Jim and Finlay Calder, former Scottish rugby internationalists and the other day Joe Forte, owner of the Sports shop in Haddington called in. Joe is an ex-professional footballer and has completed over 20 marathons.
The reminiscence group, intended mainly for gentlemen over 60 years, has proved to be tremendously popular. They meet in the Star room, John Gray Centre, at 10.00am every Tuesday morning and at half time enjoy a pie and Bovril.
