Welcome Party at Wedmore

Last night we held a welcome “party”, actually a gathering, to allow all our new members to meet up socially with many of the more established members. It was a gorgeous evening which allowed us to be outside and enjoy the first real event for nearly two years. As Covid restrictions ease we hope to hold more social events and combine them with the principle aim of the club which is to provide excellent bowling opportunities all year round with our fantastic indoor and outdoor facilities. Some pictures taken by our club photographer Steve Wilkinson give a flavour of the event.

Green & Club Opens for Summer

Isle of Wedmore Bowls Club Green Opening was very different this year.  It was the first to be held in two sessions on a Sunday and, due to the ongoing COVID restrictions, there was no bar or refreshments served, “bring your own” prevailed.  Currently we are restricted to no more than 24 players on the Green at any one time.  The weather was lovely and sunny with little or no wind and the Green looked good and played well, thanks to the work of the Green team over the winter.

Play started with all the bowlers standing round the green for a “spider” with the proceeds going to the Visually Handicapped Bowls.  Bottles of whisky were presented to Peter Smith and Julie Collins for getting closest to the spider.

12 ends of bowls were played, in each session with a break halfway.  It was lovely to see members again after the lockdowns and welcome some new faces who joined during last year.

Italian Night

The start af a new season and we aim to get it off in style. The Social group invite members to a fun night of good food and a bit of fun. As there is a limit to numbers get you name on the list in the club asap.

Club Lunch 2019

The Club held its annual Lunch and trophy presentations on Sunday 20th October. The venue was Batch Country House and as always, the staff and organisation were excellent. Members enjoyed a happy and friendly occasion in a glorious setting which added to the occasion. It was pleasing to see so many of our newer members present along with those who have always supported this important club event. Trophies were presented by Club President Dennis Stansfield. Thanks were given to Margaret Davies & Alan Birch for managing the competions through out the season & Dave Nicholls for organising the Lunch. The pictures reflect the event and were taken by club photographer Steve Willkinson.
