First club competition of the season. Brilliant sunny day temeratures way up, and the Gents just managed a win 3 rinks to 2. However the result was secondary to everyone enjoying a little friendly rivalry and an excellent afternoon bowling. Well done to the Gents.
What a day!! The weather did not let us down, best day so far this year, 70 plus members, guests and new members were present for the opening of the clubhouse. The official opening of the clubhouse was performed by the mayor of KL&WN Carol Bowers and an excellent job she did ( a special lady). Thanks to every one for their patience waiting for both photographers to get their subjects in exactly the right positions. A plaque was then presented to the club from Bowls England represented by John Ottaway (Secretary Norfolk Bowls Association). Followed by hot dogs and burgers for the hungry masses. The next stage of the proceedings was for President Kath Pinder to officially open the green allowing for all seven rinks to used by bowlers. Finally the committee and members made Linda Oakey, Trevor Oakey and Geoff Bonnick life members in recognition of their commitment to the refurbishment of the clubhouse. What a day!!
The green opens on Saturday 7th April. The refurbished clubhouse is now complete (looks fantastic) and the official opening of the clubhouse will be carried out by the Mayor of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk
at 11.30 am, so if you want to be part of the clubs history do not be late. We would ask that all club members attending to please wear (if you have one ) your club shirt for the official opening of the clubhouse.
The timetable for the day is, opening of the clubhouse 11.30 am, hot dogs and beefburgers from 12.00 am followed by your free glass of wine. The ceremonial opening of the bowling green will take place approximately 13.45 pm and then all those who wish to bowl can then bowl. In between all this eating, drinking and merriment please do not forget to pay your annual membership and any other fees due, look forward to seeing you all on the day.
Exciting times, the upgrade of the club house has begun. Preparatory work has begun ready for the builders who will commence the major work on the 20th November.
Lets hope all works will be completed ready for the opening day on April 7th.
