Finals day, our cumulation of club competitions through the Summer months took place on the weekend of the 9th and 10th of September. The weather was raving hot on the Saturday but  Sunday it was interesting, with waterproof jackets and coats coming on and off all day!

It was nice to see.our new shirts out in force and thanks to those who did support the Club as spectators

There is also some more pics on our facebook page - button on top right of page.

Well, you must call a spade a spade and the Tourist matches have had good support this year after a lot finger pointing. Well done to all supporters  who put their names down to play, its VERY IMPORTANT for the club finances.


A lot of admiring and complimentary remarks have been received this year on our new club shirts and even

more on the  bold choice by the A team to match with navy blue bottoms. Some members have

expressed thoughts on the whole club going over to them instead of greys. Hmmm..

STOP PRESS! The Ladies section have decided on Navy Bottoms next year ( The clothes, of course.!)...

For those members who want a club shirt, they now can be supplied at the Clubhouse from various

members of the Comittee, Danny, Richard, Vicky etc. The new delivery has arrived at last and we

should have all sizes in stock now.


Our Winter leagues have now started - keep your eye on the Clubhouse notice board for teams

and dates.. Remember, our club is the only one on the Island that covers winter play on a full size rink

that is included in the subscription! The entry forms for the Indoor Competitions is now on the Club noticeboard - Competitons start in November.


Colin Beavis, who has edited and published our weekly newsletter for the last 13 years or so, is finally hanging up his 'Editors Hat'. He will not be producing and publishing his letter in the South Wight Chronicle, or the Clubs website after the season closes. What a fantastic and dedicated job he has done for the Club in performing this task week in and week out without a miss.

He also produced the first website for the Club back in the day - one of the 1st clubs to have one on the Island. However, he will not be retiring from the game and his skills on the green will still be enjoyed by all.

The website will try and provide some of the weekly info Colin provided, but sadly, it will not be quite so comprehesive.



One of the best loved characters at the Club, Tony Horrnby. has sadly passed away this week. Tony, has been there so long he seemed like part of the furniture. He always had had an opinion on everything and you could always heve a good bit of banter with him. He will be certainly be sadly missed by the men players in the Club and our love and sympathy go to his lovely wife Janette. God Bless Tony.

Tonys Funeral

A service was held in St Lawrence Parish Church on Thursday 9th November.  A lovley service was well supported by the Club and this was  followed by a wake in the Mill Bay Inn and thanks to Janette and her family for their generosity for providing refreshments and food.


Vicky, our treasurer, has been busy so please read and do - Thank You!


It was agreed at our last committee meeting to sign up to easyfundraising, which is being promoted to clubs by Bowls England, as a way of earning extra income.  Please ask all of your friends and family to support us also, by signing up.

You can find our easyfundraising page at



Our beginners night on Monday night, due to lack of support and the inclement wheather we

are experiencing at the moment is suspended for now. Another factor is heating and lighting the clubhouse  with low attendance is not viable at the moment. if you do wish to  have a session, please contact the clubhouse or phone John Walker - contact on club official page.
