It is understood that the "Wokingham District Motor Club" existed some years ago and was formed by motorists of the Wokingham Area. The Rose Bowl was competed for annually. When the Club ceased to exist the last winner of the Crawley Rose Bowl gave it to a Mrs Mollie Fletcher who apparently had always greatly admired it. When Mrs Fletcher died the family presented it to Wokingham Town Council for it to be displayed with the Town silver.
