We had a friendly meeting on Thursday 29th November with the Scout Association arranged by our Chairman. 7 representatives came, 4 of whom played. An enjoyable afternoon was had by all. Refreshments were served and a raffle was held, the proceeds together with a donation from the Scouts and money collected from Bowls members in lieu of Christmas cards will be sent to the East Anglia Air Ambulance Service in the New Year. Will let you know the amount.
Our last meeting is on 17th December this year and we start back on 7th January 2019.
Newborough Carpet Bowls Club is a small and friendly club established in 1985. We meet and play short mat indoor bowls in
Newborough Village Hall every Monday afternoon from 2pm to 4pm and on alternate Thursdays, also from 2 to 4pm. We play for social fun rather than in a league, so there is no pressure and all comers
are well supported.
Our members range in age – at present our youngest member being in their mid-teens and our oldest member is a nonagenarian. We enjoy each other’s company and banter, as well as the actual bowls itself. We have recently hosted a local bowls club from Glinton, and also have plans to host local retired Scout leaders as well as the Peterborough Association for the Blind bowls club.
We are always looking for new members of all ages and abilities to join us. Don’t worry if you haven’t played before – it’s great fun and very easy to learn. If you are interested in joining us, please feel free to call either;
Derek Skingle (Chair) 01733 810075 or
Anne Martin (Vice Chair and Treasurer) 01733 810632
Sharron Carter (Secretary) 01733 810460.
Membership is only £2 per annum, and each session is just £1.75 including tea/coffee and biscuits – the laughter is free! Alternatively, just come along one afternoon – the first session is a taster and free.
Come and give us a try. We look forward to seeing you!"
