Following the recent removal of the old tool shed the west end of the clubhouse has had new cladding applied.  The work was ably carried out by Simon and Lindsay Godden with the assistance of Phil Clark, taking just 3 days to complete.  The new cladding certainly looks good.

The event was a great success and enjoyed by everyone.  The bright sunny and warm weather certainly helped.  It was so nice to see so many people in 1920's costume.  The raffle made £103 superseding the excellent £90 made from the centenary day raffle. A big thank you to everyone for making it such an enjoyable afternoon and a special thanks to those organising the event.  See article in Darlington and Stockton Times

Bowls England - Step 4 Covid Guidance (18/07/21)

 

From Monday 19th July, Clubs are not required to enforce any COVID restrictions by law. Bowls England are recommending, however, that Government guidance on mask wearing indoors is still adhered to by our Clubs, and that all Clubs continue to utilise the NHS COVID app to ensure the spread of the virus is limited.  We are sure that the bowls community will respect people’s personal choices regarding masks, social distancing and their own well-being.  The club has always followed Bowls England recommendations and will continue to do so.

Centenary Day (26/06/21)

On the afternoon of Saturday 26 June we belatedly celebrated the club centenary as it could not be celebrated properly last year.  The club was established in 1920. (See the history page for more information)  To celebrate the occasion we competed for The Dennis Boyes Centenary Trophy. Congratulation to John Gorman on winning the trophy.  A big thank you to all those who organised the match, provided the food and drink and anyone who contributed to make it a pleasant afternoon.
