  • JUNE 15th & 16th 2019 PRESIDENT'S DAY AND CAPTAIN'S WEEKEND

    WITTERING'S GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY

    Witterings and District Bowls Club celebrated 50 years of bowling this weekend.
    From humble beginnings 50 years ago the club is now well established on the bowling calendar and has proved to be a popular venue
    with touring sides and local clubs, with a fine reputation for the friendliness and hospitality that is always offered.

    PRESIDENT’S DAY

    On Saturday 15th June, with perfect timing the rain stopped, the clouds lifted and the Anniversary afternoon got under way.
    A ‘spider’ started the events and the winner of a bottle of champagne was ladies captain Chris Horsley.
    The proceeds collected from this were donated to the club’s chosen charity.

    Six mixed triples matches followed with the teams changing their position of play after every six ends.
    The winning team with most shots were Maureen Mulligan, Jackie Clapton and Alan Somerville.
    The runners up were Ken Clark, Dave Buckton and Sandy Paton.

    Matches over, members and friends gathered in the Pavilion where President Fred Knotts presented prizes to the winners
    and a buffet was set for all to enjoy.

    CAPTAIN'S DAY

    Sunday 16th June started with heavy rain all morning and doubts that this event would even take place, but, with perfect timing once again
    the rain stopped in time for the afternoon of bowling.

    A ‘spider’ started the afternoon once again then four triples and one rink embarked on numerous fun games of bowls with three triples teams
    emerging as victors.
    The winners were Barbara Newman, Mark White and Glyn Dobson who beat Ken Green, Tony Nixon and Kevin Jobson by one shot,
    followed by Lindsay Bangs, Teresa Heathorn and Lesley Thomas in third place.

    Exhausted and wind battered bowlers were ready for a sit down in the club house where they were served enjoyable and much needed refreshments.

    Captains Brian Barnes and Chris Horsley presented the prizes and the raffle was drawn.
    The weekend was brought to a close with a vote of thanks from President Fred. Knotts

  • APRIL 27th 2019 WITTERINGS AND DISTRICT BOWLS CLUB 50TH. ANNIVERSARY. 1969 - 2019
    The Witterings and District Bowls club are proud to be celebrating their Golden Anniversary this year.

    The Club has gone from very humble beginnings 50 years ago, to become the popular and competitive venue it is today. 
    This transformation is largely due to the time and input by members whose unstinting hard work behind the scenes maintains the Club and grounds to such a high standard.

    We are also indebted to the GF Woodger Trust whose financial support over the years has enabled us to purchase expensive yet vital items of equipment from huts to lawn machinery which has allowed  our hard working Green Keeper Ken Clark to maintain the greens to an enviable standard.

    I am proud to be your President during this celebratory year.
    Thank you all for your input and good luck with the matches and competitions.

    Fred.
