Welcome friends to St Mary's Carpet Bowls.
YOU are welcome to find Fun, Fellowship and Friendship - YOU name it, we feel we have it, all sorts and conditions of folk.
The Carpet Bowls Club meets in the Parish Hall at 10am to 12 noon on Monday mornings and again from 2pm until 4pm on Monday afternoons, from September to early July. We enjoy a relaxing interval mid-sessions of play with coffee or tea and biscuits. We have two terms, Autumn from September to December and Spring, January until July.
Once a year the whole club comes together for an enjoyable annual lunch and any trophies are presented. The Derek Scrivens trophy is currently held by Keith Griffith after a fun knockout competition. Other trophies are given for the most improved players of the year.
We must thank Sidney Robinson and Derek Scrivens and the rest of that first committee in May 1985 for their vision and tenacity in setting up the Bowls Club on such a firm footing, so that we are still playing more than 30 years on.
If you are interested in joining us, please speak to
Olive Waters directly or contact her through the Church Office.
“I come to Carpet Bowls because of the fellowship.
I am happy to come to make the tea, even if I can’t play any more,
because of all the smiling faces around.
It really does me good and I look forward to it.”
