Club members had a great time on bank holiday Monday playing coronationbowls Congratulations to: Winner of fun bowls - Stuart Winner of Spider - Audrey Winner of Best Outfit - Joy-Ann (and thank you for the cakes!) Over £60 was raised for the club.
As with all organisations, we need help maintaining everything. We have a team up at the club on a Monday morning - please just turn up if you can. If you can't turn up on a Monday, please contact Terry Decoine (Green Maintenance) or Tony Obbard (Club Maintenance) to find out how you can help at a time convenient to you.
The green is open if a little heavy at the moment. It will be cut again on Monday morning.
Our regular Club Roll Ups start (weather permitting) on Monday.
Monday from 2:30
Tuesday from 6:00
Thursday from 6:00
You are welcome to roll up any time a rink is free (check the diary in the clubhouse) but these are times when you can be confident that others will be there. Social members are welcome to come to Roll Ups.
An induction evening for new members was held at the club this evening (Thursday 13th April). The Green was a white-out thanks to the hail but our new members were welcomed with a rainbow —see our facebook page for pictures.
General requirement for inter-club friendly, league and cup matches is for Club shirts and grey bottoms. Organised intra-club competitions can be white shirts & grey bottoms but Finals are to be played in whites. There is no specific dress code for informal intra-club leagues, club afternoons, roll-ups or open days
Starting from Monday 24 April, organised roll-ups will be held on Mondays from 2:30pm and on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6.00pm, alongside the planned internal Leagues. There will be some dates when sessions cannot take place and Members will be kept informed.
A hard-copy diary will be placed in the Clubhouse, marked to show the number of rinks required for Club fixtures and other organised matches plus times when the green is not available due to necessary maintenance work. To book a rink for roll-ups or competition matches, please enter details into the diary.
Thanks to Bob York the club now owns a defibrillator, sited centrally in the Club House during the season. Please make sure you know where it is and keep the clubhouse unlocked during matches for ease of access.
You can learn to do CPR and use a defibrillator in just 15 minutes on your mobile or tablet.
Contact Audrey Franks for further information and details of demonstrations given by the Fire Brigade
Following last year's successful trial of providing light refreshments after Club Friendlies the arrangement will continue in 2023. A match fee of £5 will be payable to cover costs for you and your opposite number and must be paid whether or not you are staying to eat. Additional visitors will be catered for where possible at a cost of £3 - please request in advance.
For league games and external competitions self-catering snacks/nibbles may be organised by and at the discretion of respective Captains.
