Peter White


Peter White, of Langtoft BC, passed away on Tuesday 9th January 2024, aged 82 years. 


"He was an established bowler and, in 2010, became winner of the Over 65s at Skegness. He was still playing a competitive game up to last season, winning the Langtoft Club 19 Singles title. Peter was a true gentleman and will be missed by Anne and his family, and the bowling community in the Stamford League and further afield."
