The emphasis in the short term, based on feedback received so far, will be on providing a pleasing social environment for members to meet.

With that in mind the working party is busy researching the following social and light exercise activities:

  • Pre-Bowls warm up light exercise sessions for members prior to a game of bowls
  • Quiz nights
  • Family Fun Days
  • Live music evenings (e.g. jazz or folk)
  • Butser guided “rambles” – Starting and ending at the Pavilion for refreshments
  • Horse, Dog & Pig racing nights – No really! This is one of the most popular social events in clubs across the country. Pre-recorded race DVDs are shown and members can bet (and win!) whilst enjoying a laugh, a light meal and a beer or glass of wine in good company.
  • Grand Summer Barbeque
  • Shambolic fun target Bowls days – Participants are invited to “compete” in a knockout competition aiming at fun targets.
  • Period fancy dress parties – including Pirates, Beatles 60s, Cartoon characters and many more
  • Chess, Backgammon, Scrabble, Whist & Bridge groups

In addition we are considering making available on a scheduled basis the services of a manicurist, podiatrist and sports masseur. Also, there have already been suggestions of perhaps photography and/or art club meetings on occasions. Finally, we have a blank canvas, so members will be invited to suggest any particular social programme that they feel might be interesting. All suggestions will be given a fair hearing and considered.

Let’s all make this a great Club to belong to.

Thank you.
