PRESIDENTS DAY JUNE 20TH 2015

 

 

The club and bowling president for 2015 is Adrian Hinchcliffe.  

Adrian and his wife Barbara (pictured below) have been members of the club for

more years than they would like to remember, in fact when they became members

the club was then known as ‘St Leonards Institute’.   

 

 

 

 

 

The bowling competition started at 1 o’clock and the bowlers had to don their waterproofs due to the inclement weather, but thankfully by the time the finals were due to start the sun decided to come out and the finalist were able to remove their waterproofs and play in clothing more fitting for a summer’s day.

The ladies finalists were Julie Beesley and Jennifer Iddon (the president’s daughter) this was a tightly fought competition but in the end Julie was the eventual winner.

The men’s finalists were Neil Roberts and Sam Patterson, again another closely fought match which saw Neil just coming out on top.

Adrian would like to take this opportunity to thank the bowling committee, the caterers  for an excellent buffet

and anyone else who contributed to making his president’s day a truly memorable one. 

 

 

 

2014

 

Our President for 2014 is Mr Alan Heaton and his chosen charity

is Macmillan.

 August 9th 2014 was Presidents Day and a good day was had by all

and thank you to everyone who bought raffle tickets, tombola tickets and joined in with the fun bowling.

The winners of the fun bowling were Thelma Collins and her

partner David Heaton, well done.

The evenings entertainment was provided by trio called Inunison,

a superb act enjoyed by all.

Everyone’s a winner

 

 Members, their guests and visitors will be delighted to know that something has been done

about the dreadful state of the club’s car park.  No longer will anyone risk stepping out of their car

ankle deep into a grimy puddle.  Thanks to a lottery grant from Sport England’s, Inspired Facilities programme, plans are now under way to resurface the whole car park site and install good drainage.

 

Additionally, our bowling members can enjoy bowling after dark following the

installation of new floodlights, also financed by the same lottery grant. 

The application, made in March this year, has gained us a sum in excess of £47,000 –

a figure which with our limited resources we could never have dreamt of raising from members only.

 

We have undertaken several community projects as a condition of earning this grant, and the

first of these happened on 29 September when we ran a fun bowling day for non-bowlers as well as

our own bowling members.  So, look out for similar events in the future, and whether bowling is for

you or not, the whole community is a winner.  So, when you tear up your losing lottery ticket next Saturday, just remember that one of the good causes you have supported is your own local community.  Well done everyone.
