Touring Team visit Steyning
At the beginning of September Steyning Bowls club welcomed a team from Didcot who had been staying in Worthing. They had been playing local teams such as East Preston and Preston (based in Brighton.) We were delighted to meet such a friendly club and so many Steyning players wanted to play that we swopped some players in after tea. The tea of homemade cakes, provided by Joan and Sheila, was very much appreciated. The final score was a win for Steyning on four of the five rinks but this was largely irrelevant as everyone enjoyed the game on a glorious afternoon. Angela, Didcot’s captain of the day, thanked Steyning and presented the club with a pendant. She also pointed out that their club was celebrating their 50th anniversary as are Steyning Women’s section. There was time for socialising and a few drinks before Didcot had to get their coach back to the hotel. We hope to meet up again in the future.
Captains Sheila Barnes and Paul Hampson enjoying Captain’s Day on 21st July. This is a chance for the club to come together and show their appreciation of the work done by both captains. A fun match was played before we gathered for a delicious tea.
Our charity this year is Skin Cancer and we are trying to raise awareness as well as money to support research. Our charity day on 2nd August raised over £600.00. We welcomed a team of Vice Patrons and played five rinks. After an enjoyable game we had a very sociable meal in the clubhouse. Our thanks to everyone who helped to raise money for this very necessary research.
