St Thomas More School Visit – Thursday 16th June

It was wonderful having St Thomas More School children visit us for the second year running and taking on six bowls challenges we’d set them. Forty one pupils over two separate sessions took to the green under a blazing sun with nine club members guiding their efforts with bowling tips and encouragement as the best scores were rewarded with prizes.

The club hope to follow up this taster with an invite to some of the best bowlers to come down again and enjoy some more bowling as they look to re grow their junior section. We also hope to see some of the teachers join us in a few weeks time as they take on the same challenges, our thanks go to Eoin Power at the school for helping to make this happen.

Queens Platinum Jubilee: Hog Roast – Thursday 2nd June

The Club celebrated the Queens Platinum Jubilee with its own ‘Jamboree’ at the club with over one hundred members and friends in attendance.

The Club hired a professional Chef to provide all catering in the form of a hog roast with desserts to follow. Members decorated the clubhouse inside and outside with bunting, flags, inflatables, balloons as music played and a quiz and raffle followed. Members were encouraged to wear Red, White & Blue. The evening ended with most of the guests taking to the green to tackle six spectacular challenges named ‘tower bridge’, ‘red carpet’, ‘crown’ ‘royal ascot’, ‘windsor castle’ and ‘ship launch’. Prizes were handed out to the winner of each challenge by our stand in Queen along with a prize to the best dressed guest.

The evening ended with most of the guests taking to the green to tackle six spectacular challenges named ‘Royal Ascot’ ‘Tower Bridge’, ‘Crown’, ‘Windsor Castle’, ‘Red Carpet’ and ‘Ship Launch’. Prizes were handed out to the winner of each challenge by our ‘stand in’ Queen along with a prize to the best dressed guest.  Some of these ‘challenges’ are shown below (The Red Carpet had been rolled up!)

Our Annual Mixed Triples Gala – Bank Holiday Monday 2nd May

After two years we returned to the normal version of our Annual Mixed Triples Gala; though to avoid clashing with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee events at the end of May it was held this year on Monday May 2nd.   The rain held off and, for a change, there were no trains to disturb the peace – thank you Network Rail! – so 24 teams ventured onto an immaculate green throughout the day for some competitive but friendly bowling. At the end the prizes went to;

1st prize: The Last Resort (Berkhamsted); 2nd pr1ze: Doom Bars (Mid Surrey) & 3rd Prize: London Pride (also Mid Surrey).

Our grateful thanks to: Roy Chapman Ltd, Waitrose, Halo  Hearing Solutions and Oakleys Estates for their sponsorship of the Prize Money – Remember to support those local businesses that support our  Club

Support for Ukraine – Friday March 11th & Wednesday April 13th

The Club is supporting the aid efforts for Ukraine by holding fund raising events on the above dates.

Sheila ran a social fund-raising evening on Friday 11 March. Burgers and hot dogs were available and of course it was a good chance to catch up with other members over a drink from the bar. The club donated the food for the evening so all money raised is going direct to a ‘matched donation’ Ukraine Appeal.   All were asked to wear something blue & yellow.

Sheila also plans to hold a burger/hot dog lunch plus tea or coffee  on Wednesday 13th April at 1.00 p.m; the cost will be £2.50. Hopefully this will raise some more funds for Ukraine  Please add your name to the sign up sheet on the notice board in the Clubhouse or contact her if you are unable to get to the clubhouse before then.

So far nearly £1200 has been raised – fantastic, brilliant.

Social Events

The poster for our next Social Event (when arranged) will appear in this ‘White Space’.

In the meantime, a reminder to all Members that Friday evenings from approx. 6 p.m. are Club Nights.

These are opportunities to play social bowls, have tuition (if you want to!), or just meet and share a drink with fellow members and friends.  Perhaps Newcomers could play some of their Newcomers Singles Matches then; I am sure there will be plenty of helpful advice available!

We would like, in the near future, to restart some food evenings (e.g. burgers, tapas, fish & chips, pizza). These were a ‘Friday Evening’ feature in years prior to Covid. 

If you’d like to do one then contact a Committee Member
