Monday afternoon sessions have resumed

These sessions start at 2.00 and are open to members and people who would like to try the game for the first time. You can telephone Mary ( 01273 887953 ) for details or just come along. You only need flat shoes as we provide everything.

Wednesday Evening Roll-ups.

David Richardson will be running his sessions from 5.00pm every Wednesday starting on the 4th May. New and old members are very welcome. If you want to try bowls for the first time David will introduce you to the game – just remember to wear flat soled shoes.

Friday Night Yard-stick competition

Every Friday night starting at 6.00pm Peter Baker runs a 3 wood competition. This is a 14 end yard-stick game.

The new club charity for 2022 is the Air Ambulance and we hope to beat last year’s total when we raised money for the Kangaroos children’s charity.

Closing Drive and Presentation of club trophies 29th Sept. 2019

The last drive of the season was sadly rained off but this didn’t stop many of the members coming along for the Presentation Day celebrations. The trophies, certificates and gift vouchers were handed out by the club President, Reg Strong, abled assisted by both Captains. Reg chose to award the special President’s trophy to Sheila Barnes, women’s captain, for her dedication to the club and the wonderful fund-raising work she has performed over many years.

 

A final whip-round amongst the members brought the total for our 2019 charity collection to £786. This will be sent to Cancer Research UK and used specifically for research into Skin Cancer.

So the 2019 season ends but the work goes on. Just the day after saw the arrival of six tonnes of sand. Members helped to lift the ditch mats in preparation for the graden machine which was scheduled for Tuesday. The wet weather didn’t deter and the next day it was “all hands on deck” to feed the machine with sand and seed. The work went on from 7.00am to nearly 1.00pm and the workers were sustained by bacon rolls and tea provided by Heather and Sue (Well Done Heather for combining this with feeding the graden machine too. Trust you didn’t get the rolls and sand confused!) All this hard work should pay off next season when the green will be much improved. Thanks to everyone who helped. As is often said if you haven’t got green you haven’t got a bowls club.
