It is with great sadness the Club reports the passing of JOHN SHOTTON on Saturday 23rd February after a short illness fought with fortitude and faith.
John was a hugely likeable member and the epitome of kindness and good manners. Our thoughts are with his family.
The funeral will take place at 11.30 am on Thursday 21st March at Sacred Heart Church, Berkhamsted and there will be a Reception afterwards at Ashridge Management College.
Please notify ANNE FURLONG if you intend to go to the Reception (email: email@example.com, or text: 07712850646, or phone: 01442 862768).

Winter Programme – 16th March 2019
A full house of 60 was treated to fine evening of entertainment and food at the club on Saturday 16th March as they sought to identify “Who Dun It” in Mis-Match Murder presented by the ‘Berkhamsted Bowls Thespians’ !!??
The “Play Wot He Wrote” was by ‘our own’ John Bell.
