After the Wedmore Street Fair – Junior Champion Ruby O’Neill from Cross was presented with her Prize and a Certificate to remember the occasion. She is shown hear recieving her certificate from Dave Nicholls who organised the Target Bowls Challenge for the Club.
On Saturday 6th July we returned to The Wedmore Street Fair with an improved Bowling Challenge. The aim to give people a feel for bowling and to see what Isle of Wedmore Bowls Club have to offer. The greatest success was in the interest of the juniors who were really excited and very competitive – so let’s hope for a junior section in the club!!!
The Challenge saw Richard Heyward ( a visitor from Cornwall) score the maximum of 250 but the Junior winner Ruby O’Neill nearly matched him with a score of 240. Prizes and Certificates will be presented to the worthy winners. The weather was glorious, and the day hopefully will result in new members joining our great club.
On Wednesday 26th June Wedmore Hosted the County Patrons match against Hertfordshire Bowling Association Patrons. Following the match it transpired that Elvis had been playing incognito for Hertfordshire and he entertained the audience of players and spectators. Just goes to show that Bowls can be surprising and a great deal of fun. The aim of the Patrons in each county association is to support and promote Bowling and to look after the welfare of others less fortunate. The day was a huge success and a big thanks goes to all who made the day so special – particularly Elvis (aka Don).
Due to the high rainfall and wind overnight coupled with a forcast for it continue all of today, the Bowling Green will be closed all day, to protect the turf and for the safety of players. The planned Clevedon & District Tripples match against Long Ashton which was due to start at 10:30 has been postponed and will be played at a future date
We appologise for for any incovenience
