The green was opened for the 2021 season on our opening day Saturday 17th April.
The proceedings started with presentation of ‘Honorary Life Membership’ certificates to Jean Broadbent and Mary Vye, in recognition of their ‘long distinguished support and service to the club’, along with thanks to the many members for their hard work and donations, by President, Barrie Tatman.
A lively, friendly game, with much cross-rink banter, took place between club members, on this bright sunny day, leading to the outcome of a top rink comprising lead: Tony Finch, 2: Enid Ball, 3: Mark Crompton and Skip: Brian Beeston, all received a prize bottle of wine (although a small one) for their achievements.
The ‘outdoor hospitality’ of our bar, provided by Graham ably assisted by Roger, kept the day flowing, thirsts quenched and the world was put to right.
At 3pm. a one minute’s silence was observed in respect of HRH, Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh.
The day was conducted under strict observance of the Government and Bowls England ‘Covid-19’ guidelines.
