New Years Eve

The club will be open to all members (Boris permitting) on New Years Eve.If you fancy a social evening enjoying a quiet drink and a chat (food is available) come along. Much more enjoyable than watching the same old New Years rubbish on the television.

Closing of the green

Our closing of the green was on Saturday 2nd October, unfortunately the weather did not allow any bowling. However I am sure everyone who was there thoroughly enjoyed Jane and Pat’s  cream teas.

So that is it for 2021, a pretty successful year all things considered. We now look to 2022, opening of the green will be Saturday 2nd of April 12.00hrs. Looklng forward to seeing existing and new members, coaching for beginners is every Wednesday 10.30 am starting on Wednesday 13th April. Stay Safe and see you all next year.

In the afternoon we played County Arts in the final, County Arts getting the better of us, congratulations to County Arts. We had a brilliant days bowling and thoroughly enjoyed the company of both clubs. A big thank you to Wymondham Dell for their excellent hospitality.

Now on to our Fourth semi final of the season, against Downham Market ‘B’ in the Downham Triples League.

PRESIDENTS DAY

Sunday the 18th July was Presidents day. The whole day is dedicated to raising funds for the resident Presidents, Geoffrey Upton, chosen charity which was, “The Daisy Garland”.

The weather was brilliant, the food (catered by Tony and Kath Pinder) was excellent. There were various fund raising schemes going on throughout the day, raffle, number of sweets in a jar, guess the weight of the cake, target bowls to name but a few. There was also the important   “Presidents Plate” competition to play for, won by, guess who? the President, Geoffrey Upton.

The whole day was an outstanding success and a grand total of £765 was raised for “The Daisy Garland”. I would like to thank all members and guests who attended on the day, and of course those who were unable to attend for their unbelievable generosity.

A HUGE THANK YOU TO YOU ALL.
