Club Social Evening

A suggestion from a member. Thursday is to become a social evening for club members, both bowling and non-bowling. Anyone who simply wants a roll-up can turn up. Usually at least two rinks are free.

Spectators for NWKL and Fish and Chip Mixed Triples League welcome. NWKL runs up to 16th August - the fixture booklet indicates whether matches are Home or Away. Mixed Triples runs every week (except 2 August) up to the end of August.

Extra Fish and Chip orders easily be added. They are usually ordered around 6.00pm but could be phoned through later. However, they are collected at 8.15 so would need to be ordered by 7.30 if you come later than 6.15pm

Just turn up and enjoy! Starts 21st June!

Players Needed for 16th & 17th June

Players needed for both of the Men's Millenium League games scheduled for this coming weekend. Please help Terry by volunteering to play if available

Help Needed

This is a plea for assistance with club maintenance. At present we only have 2 people working on the green and surrounding area on a regular basis. They are Dave Hacker and Dave Burgin. Also Alan Warner is doing the spraying on a weekly basis and is licensed to carry out this task. We urgently need at least two more volunteers to assist for 2-3 hours on a Monday morning. Or a rota basis would equally work. The work would consist of grass cutting, tidying edges, weed killing, moss removal and other tasks as required. This is a friendly and social work force with tea breaks included. If anybody would like to help then turn up on Monday 4th June at 10am

Our hedge is also due to be cut, this involves use of a scaffold frame and a power hedge trimmer. Trevor Seabrook is willing to start this on Monday 11th June but needs help with clearing up as he will be doing the cutting.
