We have just confirmed the next First Aid Course to run on 11th October 2022 between 2pm and 5pm in the Club House.  However, I am still one volunteer short, so I am asking again, would anyone like to be trained in basic life saving first aid and can make this date.

 

You do need to be fit enough to kneel down and administer first aid, but that is all.

MEN’S COUNTY DOUBLE FOURS – ABERGAVENNY CUP
On Wednesday evening, 22nd June our Men’s Double Fours team played, home and away, against Gullivers BC in the Area Final of this competition.
The away team consisting of Bob Carrington, Mike Hornsby, David Grimley and Mike Clarke lost their match but, crucially, won the extra end which was played in the event of a tie.
The home team consisting of Alec Gillan, William Mitchell, Jim Pope and Barry Evans initially fell behind by a few shots. They then won eight ends in a row and needed a three on the last end. They got this with one wood to spare.
This terrific performance by the both teams  means we are now in the Quarter Final against Preston, home and away, on Wednesday 29 June.
This competition is the premier club bowls competition in Sussex. It is like the “FA Cup” of Sussex County Bowls. This year, so far, we have progressed further than we have since 1996 when we were semi-finalists.
This is a great achievement by our players. Well done to all who have contributed so far and the best of luck next week against Preston BC.

JUBILEE DRIVE A BIG SUCCESS

Friday 4th June 2022

We started the day at 10am with the Drive, this consisted of a great deal of organisation by David Grimley, who had split everyone into teams of three.  The morning was spent with each team playing each other, four ends each.
At 2pm the BBQ was ready and everyone took their seat for a feast of burgers, chicken and sausages, cooked and served up by the Social Committee team and additional volunteers.
After the lovely chocolate cake and ice cream dessert had been consumed, it was time for the final match of the day between the two top scoring teams, with the resulting winners of the day being: Maureen Whippy, Rosie Walters and David Tollhurst.
We would like to thank everyone involved in organising and delivering a spectacular and memorable day for all.

CROUCH Pano.jpg

A breezy Wednesday at The Crouch this week saw most players wrapped in jumpers and waterproofs take on Eastbourne BC The wind and the rain tested everyone's patience. Tuesday was even worse, a visiting team Buckinghamshire County Bowls Club didn't even get on the green due to the strong wind and heavy rain.  So a game of skittles ensued followed by tea and the raffle. 26/05/22

Message of thanks from The Winter Committee

The Winter Committee would like to thank all those members who supported us throughout the winter season. We played Short Mat Monday to Friday and Skittles on Friday evenings. Short mat was enjoyed by everyone and Skittles has become a great social evening. With the bar being open many members would come along just for the social side.
As Friday Skittles evenings were enjoyed by so many, Mike intends to run one every month throughout the summer starting on Friday 22 April, 7 to 9pm.
Once again thank you for your support.
VI, David and Mike

Our first club social and Valentine dance.  A huge success .
