Needham Market Bowls Club
Words by David Hindley
After a very successful outdoor season, many our bowlers are enjoying indoor bowling at the Meadlands. Any member wanting information about indoor bowling can contact me on 01449 613 144.
I would also like to say that not only have we achieved success on the green this year, but that the atmosphere in the club and the camaraderie between teams and bowlers has been excellent which makes for a welcoming and very happy bowls club.
The green was successfully put to bed and the green team will be busy throughout the close season ensuring it will be in good condition for the 2018 season. The team has been reinforced, but can always use extra help.
Our winter social events got off to a good start with carpet bowling on our not quite perfect carpet! The competition was won by Shirley Eaton with runners-up Rita Robertson and Charlie Lawson just one point behind. Thanks to everyone who took part.
By the time you read this we will have had our Christmas social with fun and games for all. Our social on Friday 19th January will see the return of the Stowmarket Strummers ukulele band with games between sets. Friday 23rd February will be the ‘Big Quiz’ which is getting to be a very competitive event, but always played in good spirit. The date and content of the March event is still to be decided.
The meet and greet day at Crowley Park have been very successful and will be resumed with the opening of the 2018 outdoor season in April. Come along and enjoy a cup of tea/coffee and a biscuit, bowls and basic instruction will be provided. If you just want to watch and chat that’s fine.
