Date: Sat 24th April

We are delighted to say the new season is up and running ! We look forward to seeing you all over the next few weeks particularly if you were unable to attend last year. Needless to say we have guidelines and rules to adhere to as we come out of lockdown which our club has been putting in place over the winter months. Please help us to help you so we can all stay safe and enjoy a great season of bowls.

The season is mainly divided into two half’s following the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown. The first half is from April 24th to 21st June when rules regarding playing and socialising are in place. The second half is from June 21st to September 31st when all rules are expected to be lifted and things are ‘back to normal’ if things go well with the pandemic measures.

We will keep you posted of all developments via all our social media outlets so please keep checking our facebook and website pages for our latest information in this fluid period. In the meantime below is our own roadmap once again for you to read and familiarise yourself with, if you have any queries please speak to your club committee members who will be happy to help.

2021 Start Up Information

Date: Coming Soon

This unusual past year has given us the chance to modernise our webiste and keep ourselves at the forefront of providing good clear and attractive information to all users.

We have created a cleaner design using more imagery, consistent colour, better use of headings and less text to get over our message. We have also re categorised pages, changed titles and cleared dated information to aid better navigation.

Whilst some pages have seen little change others have been completely re designed or added as new. As the new year progresses we will maintain flexibility in adding further pages and archiving old pages if dated or unused.

The most significant changes are the addition of a rink booking page and match or event sign up sheets which have been created as a result of the pandemic restrictions. Our latest news items along with upcoming events will be available as soon as you land on the opening home page for impact and ease of use.

Our ultimate aim is provide a website that is user friendly for our members whilst delivering information any non member is seeking in an attractive and concise manor.

Your feedback on all our changes is very welcome especially if it helps us improve it even further.

Web site - Re-design: Progress update

The aim is to present a consistent, more modern image to our web-site than that that was introduced when the web-site was re-designed in 2013.

For the time being the Suffusion theme has been retained and pages are to be constructed using Elementor page builder and our own templates (see below for an example).  

Image to the left has nothing to do with this text, but has reminded the Author of happier times in the Clubhouse!!

Placeholder for text to accompany the image to the left. 

‘Inner Sections’ Block Structure: 2 columns – 33:66 split (Can be adjusted in the  Structure part of the editing window)

The default text  is the uploaded ITC Franklin Gothic Book font, size 16 pt, weight 700 from the dropdown menu in typography.

Default Margins are 2% of block dimension (auto)

Default Padding is 2% of block dimensions (auto)

Borders left in to make identification easier – remove via Advanced/Border dropdown item

All these settings can be adjusted in the Advanced section of the Editing window

Full width Section follows

This section is a single column section (i.e. full page width) in order to demonstrate that  we can pick and vary different styles of block in a single page.  It is important to check the text colour & typography dropdown options in the Stryle tab and the various options for styling (Margins, Padding, Border etc) from the Advanced dropdown tab in the editing windows.



There may be conflicts between some of the Elementor styling and setting options and those that are in-built to the Suffusion theme.  Changes made in Elementor will by default override the host theme, with surprising and unexpected results – not all of which are good!!!

However being aware of this should prevent any heart attacks when viewing the displayed content!

January 2021                             opinion piece

It looks like happy scenes like this to the left are not going to be repeated in our Clubhouse for some time soon.

All we can hope is that everybody does their bit to get the virus transmission down by obeying the social interaction rules, even if/when they have received their vaccinations.  The latter is not an individual’s magic passport to better times – the post author believes those times have to wait until nearly all of the adult population has been immunised.

Hopefully this will allow some form of Bowling to resume towards the end of April/early May.

For the last friendly game of the season on the 19th of September Berkhamsted played Wendover Bowls Club away. It was an excellent day – the green played well and the weather was good. It was a close fought competition, but congratulations go to the winners Wendover by 82 shots to 103. Berkhamsted’ s top rink players were Jackie Healey, Dave Drew and skip Jackie Cormack. Captain for the day was Dagmar McKay.

On Sunday, the last day of the season, Berkhamsted held its traditional President’s day in which fourteen team of triples played three matches with points being accumulated for winning ends and matches. The winning team was Steve Burrell, Noreen Codina & John Bell who totalled a very impressive 37 points. The theme for the day was ‘Flora & Fauna’ and the spider contest raised money for Parkinsons.

A blend of new members, juniors, experienced bowlers and competition winners retired to the clubhouse after for a superb buffet laid on by the First Lady and her helpers providing a very successful end to a season in which Berkhamsted achieved a lot of success in the County & District competitions
