October 2018

Another enjoyable season is coming to an end and what an extraordinary period it has been. We sometimes have to cancel bowling, during persistent rain, but, this was the first year when, we have cancelled a bowling session because it was too hot. “ Wimps “ I hear you cry, but, although we are very fortunate with our facilities, there is no shade, whatsoever, on the green and, during the early afternoon, with temperatures of 30 degrees Centigrade, on a couple of occasions, we had to abandon play.
Our membership increased slightly this year to 12, still a disappointing number. If you are remotely interested in playing, please come along to any session or call 831507.
The Wednesday evening sessions, started to allow people studying or working during the day an opportunity to play, has not been well supported this year. We intend to continue with it, however, and the message is the same, if you are interested come along.
We held our AGM on the 11th September. Slightly altering the normal procedure, we discussed our business whilst enjoying cheese, wine and Jules’s sausage rolls. Ruth Johnson, our previous Captain and long term campaigner for the Club, presented the trophies for this seasons competitions :-
Singles – Mick Carson, Doubles – Reg Sysum and Mick Carson, Triples – Mike Whitworth, Don Morris and David Jackman.
