Our last game of the 2017 season was against a new club to visit Marko - Corby Seagrave - a wonderful sunny afternoon in good company on 19th September, what a way to finish! Good sporting game and social company which is what our sport is all about. Our visitors were very impressed with our facilities and a return fixture is already in the diary plus a new team at our Galas.
The green will be 'put to bed' during this month. Thanks to everyone who has made 2017 such a wonderful and enjoyable bowling season. We have been lucky enough to have some great new members join us and the support as ever from our existing ones has made for a super year. Roll on April 2018!!
The Cheese and Wine evening is Friday 6th April 2018 and our first game of the new year will as normal be the President's v Captain's match on Sunday 8th April 2018.
Look out for the winter activities, quizzes, whist etc.
