Opening of the Green. Since the end of last season a lot of work has been put in to improve the green and I am pleased to say it is looking very much better. However, appearances can be misleading and I am sure you are looking forward to see how well it bowls. If all goes to plan we are opening the green for roll-ups from 11:00am on Good Friday 18th April. Please check with the notice board for any weather related alterations to this opening date.
Ladies Captain’s Coffee Morning Thursday 24th April. Felicity and Mags your Ladies Captain and Vice Captain invite all the lady members for coffee, cake and a chat in the Clubhouse at 10:30am on Thursday 24th April. Do go along. It will help you forget the winter and look forward to an enjoyable, successful and hopefully sunny bowling summer.
Clean up Day. As usual, we are asking for volunteers to help prepare the green and grounds for the start of the season. This year Clean up Day will be Saturday 12th April and the work will be coordinated by Ralph King and Bob Coombs. If you can help on that day it would be very much appreciated. However, no doubt I will be reminding you a little nearer to the time.
It is with great sadness that I have to announce the passing of David Field.
David passed away at home on Sunday 16th February after suffering a second heart attack. He had only been a member of Marlow Bowls Club for a couple of years, but in that short time he become an active and respected member. He will be sadly missed.
The Club wishes to extend its condolences to his wife Rosie and her family.
Our thoughts are with them at this very sad time.
It is with regret that we announce the passing of John Brooks a member of Bassetesbury Bowls Club for many years, previous to this, he was a member of Marlow Bowls Club for many years.
He will be remembered with gratitude by Marlow Bowls Club for his unstinting & unpaid work in fitting the bar in the clubhouse for the opening in 1994.
John's funeral is on Thursday, 20th Feburary, at 10.45 - Amersham Crematorium
Our thoughts are with his family.
It has not been a comfortable time for Marlow residents akin to many communities around the country after the atrocious flood conditions that have blighted the UK in recent weeks. Marlow Bowls Club indeed has immense sympathy with those people locally who have suffered during this difficult time, and this includes several members among that group of people. But if it gives local people some light at the end of the tunnel it was a big relief when we visited the bowls green recently and found that the flood water had not affected the area at all and the green itself looked in remarkably good shape. The groundstaff must take huge credit for keeping up such a regime to address the problems that we had experienced in recent years, even with the poor conditions. The green now looks as good as it has been for some time and that bodes well for the summer bowling season.
We do hope that the flood problems will soon disappear and the local community can get back to a normal way of life, but once the water recedes then comes the big clear up operation, and Marlow Bowls Club would like to send its very best wishes to all those people involved in that effort.
