It has been a busy few months and I apologise for not putting updates on the website but shall try to redress so here goes and if I forget things let me know and I will add them.
We held our first 'Corporate event' this year when around 50 accoutants from Deloittes came to enjoy a sunny afternoon and evening on the bowling green with a BBQ cooked by our most willing chefs, backed up by our wonderful kitchen staff, together with club members who helped out on the green - a big thanks to all involved for what was a very successful evening and one we hope to repeat next year

Bowls Jersey Finals 2018
Congratulations to skip Mervyn Richardson, lead Mick Baudin, second Brian Bisson and third Peter Le Long who defeated a four from the JBC in the National Seniors 4's on Sunday 2nd September which was played on the excellent green at the Sun Bowls Club. The game was nip and tuck early on but then our 'boys' now known as 'Last of the Summer Wine' pulled clear in the midddle of the game and continued to remain in front although the points gap was reduced in the final 3 ends they completed a well deserved victory. Good luck when they play in the National finals.
Twilight bowls 2018
The twilight bowls and BBQ was held on Friday 7th September and this year the green was in good health and not under an inch of water. The BBQ cooks John and Fred were again on fine form and along with the hand working ladies in the kitchen and all those club members who helped to provide the salads and ingredients some 50 club members enjoyed a wonderful repast. 36 bowlers ventured out onto the green to 'bowl' under flood and torchlight with Joyce Laffoley, Duncan Loader and Barbara Le Clercq winning the star trophies.
