Thanks to all of you that attended our AGM – it was good to see so many of you after this long winter. The meeting agreed some tweaks to the constitution and rules of the club. These will be included in the membership pack which will be with you soon. The committee for 2018 was duly elected – new members to the committee are Derek Lawrence as Competition Secretary, Alec Weiss as Vice-Captain, Ray Weston as general committee member and Michelle Lawrence as Ladies Vice-Captain. Otherwise the committee is as last year. Welcome all and thanks for standing. We can now look forward to the start of the season with the green opening on Saturday 14th April.
Before then we have our spring Coffee Morning in the village hall on Saturday 3rd March starting at 10.00am. All are welcome to attend – there will be the normal range of activities and some new stalls for you to peruse. As usual, can I ask for any contributions for the raffle, tombola, book stall and, of course, the cake stall.
The next event is the Helpers’ event - This event is for anyone who has helped the club in any way (past or present) – cleaning, work party, teas, cake making, committee members, flowers, watering and anything else. We have booked the village hall on 17th March for nibbles drinks and activities from 6.30pm. All helpers and their partners are welcome. We need to gauge numbers so please let me or any committee member know if you will be attending.
We held an indoor bowling session for FBC members last Thursday. I am pleased to say it was so successful that I have booked another for Thursday 29th March starting at 4.30. The cost for the 2 ½ hour session is £3.20 for members and a special guest rate of £4.20. Let me know by return if you wish to participate – maximum number is 18.
We will be holding an open day on Saturday 12th May from 2.00pm – if you know of anyone wishing to try bowls then invite them along. More details to follow.
Looking forward to the new bowling season – see you soon.
