News and Web Changes 

This is where we'll announce the most recent additions to our web site. If you've visited us before and want to know what's changed, take a look here first. (Click on thumbnails for larger image.)

As covid restrictions ease, aggregate matches have resumed on Monday evenings for gents and Wednesday afternoon for ladies.  Kelvin Allander league matches have also started for the gents, and a restricted progam of competitions will take place. (Entry sheets are available at the club)

Members no longer have to book a rink in advance, but should complete the track and trace sheets in the clubhouse or bowls house before playing.

Green opening - Season 2021- Saturday 10th April

Message from President Ginny Thorburn  (edited June)

Dear All

First of all, a huge thanks to the 17 or so volunteers who turned out  to prepare the green for play. 
Last season, we set up a bowling WhatsApp group.  This lets you send a message to the group to say you have booked a rink and ask if anyone else wants to play, or to see that others have booked rinks and are looking for players to join.  In practice, a group of us used the WhatsApp to indicate that we would be available to play on a particular day/time. We all turned up and then divided ourselves into rinks by ballot.  The group is a mixed group, ladies and men, and play can take place on any day of the week.
(If you have not used WhatsApp before, its very easy to download the app from the internet to your smart phone.  It is also very secure.)
If you use WhatsApp and you would like to join the group, please email or text me (07768 411 712) and I will add your name.

To those members who have already paid their fees a big thank you. If you have not paid yet you can still pay your fees, either by cheque direct to the Treasurer or Bank Transfer
(bank sort code 83 25 15; A/c 00728670; add your name as a reference)

bullet4th January 2006 At last , an update!  A photo showing the clubhouse in the 1960's before the lounge extension was added. Other hot news from the carpet bowls section is the restoration of the very popular Chip Convenor post which has resulted in food arriving late on Friday evenings. It is just as well that the wives of certain members do not browse this website and see how their best efforts at keeping their men in trim condition are being badly undermined!
