There is nothing like the smell of newly mown grass to herald the beginning of spring and the Lawn Bowls season; but oh, how COVID-19 has robbed seasoned bowlers of the sport they love. With virtually no lawn bowls during 2020 and the indoor season also annihilated there is a real desire to get started. Fortunately, the ‘roadmap’ indicates that we should be able to start our season on time at the end of April and preparations are already in hand to be ready to go.
Our green is due to open on the 24th April, with our first competitive match being played ‘away’ on 28th April. We do publish a list of ‘home’ fixtures on the Notice Board on the gate of our club in North End, Meldreth and all are warmly invited to come along to support the team.
Our coffee mornings, which are a social ‘roll up’ with a midway coffee break, will start on at 10.00am on 27th April and, again, local residents are invited to come and try their hand. Basic instruction for beginners can be provided.
An ‘official’ Open Day has been pencilled in for the 3rd July but more about that in a future edition of The Listing Magazine. In the meantime, why not make a note of this date in your diaries.
We hope to see some new faces at our club this year; you can be assured of a very warm welcome.
