Castle Carey Tour


On the 9th August we had the pleasure of hosting the Castle Cary touring bowls team for a match and supper.  Although the weather was against us, we were able to play for a while before enjoying a splendid buffet provided, in the main, by club members.

Special thanks go to Carol Williams who organised the event with Castle Cary, our bartenders Rob and John and the catering team.  Our thanks also go to the Ukulele players and songsters who provided entertainment. It was an evening to remember!

Friday Triples


A big THANK YOU to Ben for organising the Friday Triples.

This event should be an enjoyable low key pleasure, even if there is a trophy at the end of it.
I’m really glad that there have been a goodly number of people signing up this year, so that there can be 2 games every Friday.  You now have over 2 weeks to get your teams organised, before the opening games.  Good luck!  And thanks again.
