Club Opening Day - 21st  APRIL 2018

Despite a chilly afternoon, most  members enjoyed the chance to brush up their outdoor game,   after such a long time indoors.

Sadly, Mike Oram has not yet been up to playing, following his troubles with breathing which, after various checks may indicate some slight heart damage requiring further tests. Will keep us all up to date with results.



After an unpromising start, it turned out to a perfect day for a bowls tournament and was enjoyed by all our entrants.

Following some excellent bowling, the finalists also excelled and the overall winning team was Jeff Hurt, Les Manwaring and Anne Sidford who played runners-up Don Butchers, Roy Horlock and Karen Guy.

Our thanks also go to the organisers Chris Coombs, Jeff Vigars and Tom Cardoza, who did a splendid job.


SATURDAY 30th JUNE 2018 - Club Mixed Pairs Tournament

This year, the weather was wonderful, despite the speed of the green, everyone had a great competition.

It should be classed as the hottest final ever seen at our Club, the finalists deserved medals for taking part....

They were, as winners John FitzGerald and Mary Butchers who scored 23 points after 12 ends.

The gallant runners-up  were Jeff Hurt and Chris Isgrove with 2 points.

They all played very well under the conditions and the organisation of he day again superb by Tom Cardoza and Jeff Vigars.

Thanks to all who took part.
