FAIRLIGHT BOWLS CLUB
MARCH 2022 NEWSLETTER
Hello to Everyone. I hope you are all well and looking forward to a new season of bowls. I understand that some of you have had Covid recently and hope that you are now well and on the recovery road.
CLUB PREMISES : Andy and his team have commenced the Wednesday maintenance working party and have been working hard in preparation for opening of the green on Saturday April 16th. If you wish to help out on Wednesday mornings at the green, please give Andy a ring for details.
FRIDAY WHIST NIGHTS : These are run by Andy (I don’t know how he finds the time!) every other Friday and includes a supper. Again, if you would like more details, telephone Andy. A reminder to everyone to bring their own wine or beer on the night. This Friday Terry Rogers will be supplying the supper and donating the receipts to a Ukranian friend to enable him to go to Ukraine and help some of the children victims of the war.
COFFEE MORNING: The coffee morning held on March 5th was very successful and raised approximately £450 for the club. Once again the contribution of cakes, raffle prizes and bacon rolls were much appreciated as was the help by so many setting and clearing up the halls.
REMINDER : A reminder to those of you who have not yet submitted your completed forms for renewing your membership to please do so as quickly possible. It would also help if you could let the club know if you are not intending to re-join. Thank you.
The new bowls season is looking very exciting and challenging. Don’t forget to put your names down for matches using the Fast Courts web site and confirm your selection on the same web site. One or two of you I know do not have the necessary facilities to do this and it might therefore be better for you to ring one of the captains direct to let them know if you wish to be considered for the matches.
Personally, I am looking forward to once again playing bowls without all the restrictions we have had during the last two years. Perhaps the weather will oblige with plenty of warm sunshine!
Hope to see you all at the opening of the green.
Pat Tulley – Chairman.
Ann Meek a former player passed away earlier this month. Ann and her husband Tony used to be members of Pett Bowls Club and joined Fairlight when they moved to the village a few years ago. Our sincere condolences to Tony and family.
