Steve Ashley performs at the Bowls Club

The Smithfield Bowls Club is in desperate need of funds to restore the bowling green.  With the worst drought in 30 years and no or very little municipal water in the last ten months, not much of the bowling green remains.

In an attempt to raise much needed funds, the club recently invited Steve Ashley to perform at a concert.  Steve is a former member of the Staccatos, known as one of the most successful bands in South Africa.  Their version of “Cry to Me” proved to be one of South Africa’s most successful singles ever, remaining 38 weeks on the charts and earning a double gold disc. 

Steve entertained Smithfielders with everything from country to Pop/Rock.  A sincere thank you to everybody involved making a great success of the evening.

Meanwhile all efforts will continue to help Smithfield’s Bowls Club find a solution to its financial problems.
