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.
We are pleased to announce the winners of the Bonanza draw for one year’s free outdoor membership of the club. The luck winners are:-
Congratulations and welcome to the club. Free coaching and support to get the best out of the sport will be provided .
In respect for Her Majesty the Queen – The Isle of Wedmore Bowls Club will not be opening on Saturday 17th April as planned so that proper observation of the Funeral for her husband – Prince Philip – Duke of Edinburgh – can be made. The club extends it sincere condolences to Her Majesty and all the Royal Family at this sad time.
All plans for opening have now been transferred to Sunday 18th April.
Two of our longest and most active members of the Club are celebrating their 60th (Diamond) Wedding Anniversary. David and Shirley Wederell have been members since the club opened and have served both Club, County and National Bowls at the highest levels. We are proud to have them as members of our Club and wish them continued health and happiness and congratulate them on the milestone achievement.
