 CHICKEN RUN – Sunday 28th March

As the number of players are still restricted, we played two sessions of ten ends, so everyone who put their names down could have a game. Lynda Saunders won the ladies chicken and Colin Bedford the men’s, well done to both. The eggs were won by Sheila Roberts and Michael Curtain. Chris Frost won the football card with Brighton. Thank you to Terry Cottle who donated the chickens and Ian and Julia Hamilton for donating the eggs.


Having rented the bowling green from the owner last year we had welcome news at Easter when we were advised the owner had rented the rest of the complex with immediate effect. The new management team led by Bernado went to work straight away and introduced a number of changes, including a vastly improved service and choice of food. They are also carrying out some much-needed building repairs. This all provided a welcome boost to our members, at what is a difficult time for everyone.

We look forward to a positive working relationship with Bernado and his team.

Chris Harding (Chairman)


Chris and Howie had a successful meeting with the sports council. They were very helpful, and it was agreed we could use all six rinks. As we can now also can play trips we will be able to complete our internal competitions.


On Easter Sunday we held a drawn Aussie Pairs competition, playing eighteen ends with a break after nine. After the competition the winning pair Lynne Armitage and Phil Goble were presented with a large Easter egg and a bottle of spirit each. The couple with the lowest score, Joan Harding and Barry Watson were presented with a smaller Easter egg each. After a few drinks in the Tavern everyone enjoyed lunch at the Belfry. Lovely to be back playing bowls, enjoying drinks and lunch with good friends!!!!


The social committee are busy organising future social events, keep checking notices at the bowls club and Monte Mar Friends. The first is 30th April, lunch at the Belfry.
