It is with great sadness to inform you that Bill Davis sadly passed away on the evening of Tuesday 23rd August.
He enjoyed his many years bowling in the club and reached the grand age of 99.
Funeral details to follow.
Good Afternoon Ladies & Gentlemen
Volunteers are still required to help with the cleaning of the club, it’s a max of two hours once a week.
The club is the responsibility of all members and once we have enough volunteers it would only be once every 4 or 5 weeks.
Derek Collins Wake
A big thank you to everyone who attended Derek's wake on Monday 4th April.
Derek would have been extremely proud that so many of his friends and colleagues past and present took the time to come along to celebrate his life at the club that he loved so much.
Derek Collins Cremation.
Derek will be cremated in a Private, Non Attendance service on Thursday 31st March.
A Wake will be held at Gosport BC's Clubhouse on Monday 4th April from 12:00 to enable all his friends and colleagues the opportunity to meet up, and to remember and celebrate the vast and varied bowling life of Derek, all anecdotes very welcome.
To honour Derek's wish never to make a fuss for him, the suggestion is to make the dress code casual.
