Fairlight Bowls Club Newsletter September 2018

Dear Members

The end of the season looms!  It has seemed so short!  However, what a great year we have had – the weather has been fantastic and the bowling has been great.  The social events have all been well attended and have been a great success.  All looks well as we head for the last club event – President vs Chairman on Saturday 22nd September.  We will be picking the teams next Tuesday so anyone who wants to play needs to sign up or let me know.


As you may know, we will be affiliating with Sussex County Bowls next year.  One of the benefits of this is that our club members can choose to participate in County matches and competitions.  There is more information on the club notice board and on the county web site.  If you are interested in either then you need to fill in the relevant form (available in the club house – note that the forms are for both men and ladies) and return to Ray Weston by 7th October.

Social and Fun Events

We have several events after the season ends:

  1. The annual club luncheon and presentation on Wednesday 17th October.  The list is on the notice board.
  2. The annual trip to the greyhounds is on Wednesday 31st October.  There are just a couple of places still left – contact Roger Greer or Penny Kenward if you are interested.
  3. A coffee morning on Saturday 3rd November.  Please help by donating raffle prizes (in the club house or on the day), making cakes for the cake stall and helping on the day.  And, of course, bring all your friends and neighbours.
  4. The Helpers Do is set for Saturday 17th November in the village hall from 6.00pm.  Anyone who has helped the club in any way, past or present and their partner is welcome.  No cost – just food, drink chat and fun.  There is a list in the club house to help us with numbers.

Nominations for Committee

The nomination list is on the club notice board.  Any member is free to nominate or be nominated for a role.  Each nominee needs to be proposed and seconded and sign to accept the nomination.   The list will close after the club luncheon on 17th October.

Looking to the future, we need to have an understudy for the treasurer role.  If anyone has a financial background or is just interested in learning please talk to either Frank or myself.
