Having been formed in 1971 it meant that 2021 was the club's 50th anniversary year. Unfortunately due to the Covid pandemic restrictions the season was badly affected as several of the leagues were cancelled or curtailed. However to celebrate our anniversary we welcomed the Devon President on Tuesday 17th August and the Bowls England President's team on Wednesday 11th August and both of those games were enjoyed by both members and visitors. A number of other games have been cancelled due to members of, not only our club but other clubs being unable or unwilling to travel and mix. Happily our celebration lunch is still going ahead on Saturday 2nd October at Lakeview Manor, Dunkeswell.
Most of our club competitions have taken place with the following results so far - Men's singles/Gary Osborne; Club singles/Tony Kury; Men's two bowl singles/Gary Osborne; Three bowl singles/Alan Smith; Men's handicap/Brian Cann; Club pairs/Janet Holmes & Mike Whitcombe; Mixed pairs/Dave Sanders & Dianne Phillips; Husband & Wife/John & Janet Holmes; Mixed Triples/Dianne Phillips, Dave Sanders & John Holmes.
Our Closing Drive is being held on Saturday 25th September and is being combined with our charity day in aid of Hospicecare. This will bring to a close what has been one of the more difficult seasons in the club's fifty year history.
