Dates for the Diary
This is just to bring you up to speed with all of the social activities planned for the Bowls Club during the next few months.
The Club’s AGM will be held this Sunday (18th November) commencing at 12 noon. Please come along and support the meeting, and find out what has been going on and what is planned for the future.
There will a party for all the children on Sunday 16th December from 3.30pm to 5.30pm in the Club. Tickets cost just £1 per child, which will pay towards the food. There will be party games, dancing, competitions, party food and of course a visit by the great man himself, Father Christmas. We are asking adults to bring along a present for the children, with a rough price guide of £5. Simply buy the present, wrap it up, and write your child’s name clearly on a label. On the day, you can drop the present off in the committee room, and at about 5pm Santa will distribute the presents to the children. This is open to children, grandchildren, nephews, nieces, cousins, etc etc of Club Members. All you have to do is put your name down on the notice in the Club, and turn up on the day with the presents. If you’re not going to the Club beforehand, email me, and I will do it for you.
If you bought lucky squares for this in the Club, why not come along and find out if you are a winner. The draw is being done at lunchtime on Sunday 16th December.
On Monday 31st December, we are having a New Years Eve party at the club, from 8 till late. As well as the bar and disco, there will be a buffet too. So why not come along and celebrate the new year with us. Tickets are just £5 per head, to cover costs, and are available from behind the bar, or from Pete Benson or myself. Alternatively you can message me to put your name down.
If you are sending Christmas cards to other Club members, you can always drop them off in the post box down at the Club, and save yourself the postage. The post box will be there from 1st to 15th December, so you can drop them off before the 16th, and collect any you may have there from the 16th onwards.
And finally, we are looking to disband the Social Committee of the Club, and replace it with a Social Team. In short this is not a body of people who sit around having formal meetings about what events to hold, but rather a group of people who are willing to help out at events. If you can help out occasionally by, for example, making rolls, selling raffle tickets, working for an hour behind the bar, or in any other way, please add your name to the list at the Club, and I will be in touch.
Any questions – please just ask either Paul Stewart or Pete Benson
