The unsung hero for 2015 is Tony Manders.
Nominated by Brian Selley on behalf of Oxon Bowling club.
Brian says " He is eighty years young and has only ever played for one club. He has been treasurer for forty eight years.
He calls by the club two or three times a week where he trims the grass around the outside of the green and he also looks after the gardens etc. He also has painted the shed and the benches over the years! No-one asks him to do this, he just does it. He runs the monthly bingo money split between the church and Oxon Bowling club. Eighteen months ago when the contractor who cuts the hedge around the green could not do it (due to ill-health) Tony stepped in and his wife helped to clear up the cuttings.
He has been captain of the seniors team for a few years now and still plays three times a week. He is a true gent on the bowling green and he thoroughly deserves this accolade."
