We are ready to start another season bowling with all our friends.

We hope you have had a good winter are ready to bowl on a winning season. 

There are a couple of dates you need to know about. Saturday and Sunday 7th and 8th April 10am to 4pm. We are having a maintenance day at the green and require members for a working party for both days. Please bring along tools, spade,fork, paint brushes, trowels etc.

We are currently renewing the edges of the green with new backing and then replacing the wooden edging surround for the whole green. We are also raising the flowerbeds and donations of any perennial plants would be very welcome.

We are holding a Social Evening on Saturday 14th April 6:30 for dining at 7:00pm. The meal cost will be £2. We are hoping that the kitchen will be completed so that we can serve Chilli or Buttered Chicken with Jacket Potatoes or Rice. If not, we will provide a Ploughmans. Let Sylvia or Sheila know your choices asap. There will also be a short session of cash bingo and a quiz.

Short Mat bowls will finish on the 17th April and the following Tuesday we will be outdoors.

We are having a social evening on Saturday 6th October with Paul Dumas entertaining. Please arrive by 7:30pm for an 8:00pm start.There will be an interval for a Ploughmans supper. There will be a raffle so donations of prizes would be very welcome please. Tickets will be £6 each.

The annual dinner will be at the Foresters Hall Kidlington on the 1st December 2018 at 7:00pm. Please note that the date on your fixture card is incorrect.
