The annual general meeting of the Bowls Section was held on 28th July 2017: the well attended meeting elected a new committee and witnessed the prize giving to the winners of the past year’s championship and handicap events. At the subsequent committee meeting Piers Steynor was elected as chairman, Peter Sampson treasurer and Louis von Broembsen secretary. The other committee members are Charmain Lawson, Brigitte Theobald, Steve Berry and Keith Gardiner.
Fifty-two bowlers enjoyed a fun morning of bowls on Women’s Day on the 9th August. The tabs in days of Wednesday and Fridays are well attended and there is no doubt the Monday evening twilight bowls will pick up again once the weather gets warmer.
An Open Day for aspiring bowlers will be held on Sunday morning 15th October, when bowls and help will be provided. The dress code is casual wear but please wear flat soled shoes. Family and friends are welcome to join us that morning – please be at the Pavilion by 9am so we can select suitable bowls for you.
The summer season will soon be on us when we have an active programme of events and friendly matches lined up. We have four wonderful coaches available to assist new bowlers so join in and get great value for your subscription. You can contact any committee member for advice on how to join the Bowls Section.
