Happy New Year!

Wow what a night! The New Years Eve party was packed and lively, enjoyed by some 70 or so members, friends and guests. Is there another club out there like us? I don’t think so! Many thanks to George and his helpers in the kitchen for providing the food and for Tim who certainly got the party rocking!

 

 

Heres to a fantastic 2019. May you all have a healthy, happy and successful year.

Gloucestershire Sunday League Review 2018!

The successful season continues! The ‘A’ team secured the 2nd division championship with a fine 6-0 win over at Stroud and our ‘B’ team saw off Cam Mills 6-0 at home in division 4 that guarantees at least the runner-up spot (we may win the 4th Division depending on other results) and promotion. Well done an thank you to all those who committed to play on Sunday mornings.

This tops off another great outdoor season for Fairford Bowls Club!

It has been another successful season in the Cotswold League. The ‘A’ team finished as runners-up on their return to Division 1 and congratulations to our ‘B’ team on winning the Division 2 title in style and gaining promotion to division 1 next season. Well done to all involved.

Please keep an eye on the noticeboards for the end of season mens meeting where you can hear the review of the season and contribute to any discussion regarding mens bowling.
