Working Party Saturday 6th April 10.30

 

Hi All we need to have a good clean up round the greens for the start of the season. Please bring your own tools.

Many hands make light work. Everyone welcome

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Great news bowlers. as you hopefully know, the bottom green is already open and now the top green will open this sunday march 24th (weather permitting). lets hope that the sun shines on us.                                                                                                     ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank You.  On Saturday 6th January we asked for volunteers to a working party to clear the paths and gullies of leaves and twigs. A magnificent turnout of over 20 bowls members made light work of the task in hand with a generous serving of fun and banter to help us along. Thank you to everyone who gave your time and energy. Lets do it again before the season starts.

The Summer of Development

Well done to Les and Jacky Phillips for all their hard work in formulating, planning, initiating, promoting, gaining funding, procuring for and running the Thursday morning crown green bowls taster and coaching sessions this summer holiday. The initiative has been a huge success with over 70 participants aged from 5 to 75 years experiencing our sport for the first time and getting bitten by the bug. As a result, many of those who tried the sport out have applied to join and carry on bowling, which is a fantastic result and a fitting testimony to all of their drive and effort.

Young and Old

All ages came along and enjoyed, practising new skills.

County Bowls News: The South Staffs Ladies County Team play this weekend against Mid-Cheshire, and two of our Ladies are involved: Debbie Tudor is selected to play No 8 away from home at the Red Lion in Frodsham, with Jackie Granger selected as a reserve at the same fixture. Alison Morgan was also selected but had to withdraw. Best of luck to the South Staffs Ladies on Sunday 24 April and in particular to Debbie and Jackie - we know you will do Wombourne proud!

Meanwhile, congratulations to our juniors Ben Fieldhouse, Connah Warr and Millie Warr who are all selected to play for Staffs Junior County v Lancashire on Sunday 8 May 2016. All three are in the home side, playing at Woodfield (bottom green). Well done, and the best of British to you too!!

 
Fantastic performances from two of Wombourne's Juniors today in the County's Mini Minor Major competition at Pennfields. First, Ben Fieldhouse battled his way through to the final in the "Major" age group category, finishing runner up to the winner Josh Jarvis. Well done Ben, a great effort! At the same time, Millie Warr was pulling up trees in the "Minor" age group, progressing to the final smoothly before beating Connor Bray to take County honours! Well done Millie, superb achievement! The photo shows Millie with Staffs County Honorary Treasurer, Registrar and Welfare Officer Mark Bircumshaw, Junior County manager Chris Lester watches on. Congratulations to both, particularly to the new Staffordshire Juniors Minor Champion 2016, Millie Warr!

GOOD NEWS

 

The new safety fence to the bottom green is Completed.

 

This will enable us to use this green at any time without restrictions when cricket matches are being played.

 

So on Sundays when you have been 'knocked out' of the competition you can get some practice in.
