Great Work -Thanks All Round

Many thanks to the dozen or so of you who turned up for our Green Preparation working parties on Friday and Saturday. In almost record time we managed to Scarify, Tine, Over-seed, Feed and Top Dress the Green. Sorted out the benches, tables and chairs. Cleaned up the flower beds and paths. And tidied up the Cabin.
Great work. All is now ready for the Grand Opening on Easter Weekend.

Job Done – But There’s More To Come

We Got The Painters In

Thanks to all those involved in cleaning down, surface preparation and toshing on the paint to give the Bowls Cabin a fresh appearance and kick-starting our preparations for the 2022 season. The work continues on Friday and Saturday (19th & 20th March) when we start the Spring Renovation of The Green. Thanks to those who have volunteered already; there’s a lot to do as we tine, scarify, seed, feed and surface dress the Green. We are sure there is something you can help with so come and join us.

Ember from the Air

Some amazing aerial photos of Ember taken by Cristian Teichner (https://cristianteichner.com). A very different perspective on our club!

Oh what a night…

37 bowlers enjoyed a thoroughly enjoyable evening playing shuffleboard, bagatelle, shove halfpenny and a putting competition and a splendid 2-course winter warming meal prepared by Jenny and Sylvia. The winning team in the closely fought competition was

Cliff Elliott, Chris & Steve Neale who were each awarded a bottle of wine and the runners up John Garland, Jean Condon & Ivy Walker received a bar of Toblerone.

Thanks to Andy Hughes, Wendy Beaney & John Garland who loaned the games, and to Jenny, Sylvia, and their team for their work in preparing, serving, and clearing up, plus all the others who helped in various ways.
