Thank you to all our volunteers

This week is national volunteer week and our Club wouldn’t exist without them. Every time you play Bowls, enjoy tea and cake at the Club, go to a social, read our Gazette article, see a poster, walk through a clean Clubhouse, drink in the Bowlers Arms or anything else related to our Club, it’s because of our wonderful volunteers. Thank you everyone.

Just a January Giggle

Dave Thomas wanted to share some Bowls Cartoons with us. He’s not saying who they remind him of, but the Website team have a few ideas we will share when the Bowlers Arms is next open for business!

Thank you Dave. We have kept the other cartoons for another time!

SUCCESS IN THE COBURN TROPHY

Well done to Judy Smooker for winning The Coburn Trophy.

The Coburn Trophy is run by Bowls Dorset and is open to any Lady who holds office in their Club. Judy is the Swanage Bowls Club Treasurer and when she’s not counting all the pennies (or organising our fantastic social events), she just happens to be an amazing bowler!

The Coburn Cup is a 4 woods singles knock out competition with the Final held on 10th September. Against tough opposition Judy won with her mantra of ‘Focus on the Green’, a tip for all aspiring bowlers!

Congratulation Judy and thank you for all your work for our Club.
