Well done Somerset juniors on your win today against Isle of Wedmore by 10 shots. A closely fought game which could have gone either way. A big thankyou to Isle of Wedmore for inviting the team and hosting the game, its much appreciated and good experience for the junior players. Your good bowls etiquette On the green has been noted by others and you should feel very proud of yourselves.

Chew Stoke

I received the following message from Chew Stoke today:

Dear Trish,

Many thanks for the match today all my players enjoyed the game and the fantastic hospitality that was arranged by a very understanding group of players led by you, the experience that my new players gained on your green for some it was their first game.

Please accept my apologies for leaving early as I am unable to leave my wife Jo for long periods of time with her Carer.

I hope we meet again in the future, thank you once again on behalf of  the Players and Chew Stoke BC.

Best wishes


Recruitment, Development Officer.

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.

Club Triples Day

The Club Triples Tournament was held on Sunday , 4th of July.  All six rinks were in play as 36 members competed by playing three matches of six ends. 

It was especially pleasing to see so many of our new bowlers taking part in their first special Club event.

In the late afternoon the weather turned wet and this prevented the final from being played by but the organisers were able to identify the winning team:  Rob Jewell, Caroline Ladd and Terry Simpson who just pipped Brian Ladd, Teresa Alden and Ann-Marie Wilkinson to win the match by two shots.

Club Charity of the year

This year our club Charity will be the Children’s Hospice South West and all proceeds from this jar and other organised events will be presented at the end of the Financial year. “Charity the Cat” will be on the bar for all to donate to – even if you have not crossed the threshold for an automatic donation. This is very worthwhile local charity and deserves our support.
