Social Events

The end of the outdoor playing season will soon draw to an end and the first indication is this email advertising the first two social events being organised by the new social committee. Coupled with this is the notice to all members that a new social event ring binder is now on the table in the hall with more details and more events that are planned along with appropriate sign-up sheets. PLEASE SUPPORT THIS NEW COMMITTEE’S ENDEAVOURS AND MAKE THEIR HARD WORK WORTH WHILE AT THE SAME TIME AS ENJOYING YOURSELVES ALONG WITH YOUR FELLOW BOWLERS.

Sunday 1st September is a CREAM TEA for £2.50 pp at the end of the Devizes Bowls Club Finals Weekend, If you are a social member come and watch then enjoy socialising afterwards. This also applies to playing members who, for whatever reason, did not make the finals.

Monday 9th September Why not try FLOODLIT BOWLS with a hotdog/burger afterwards for £1.50 pp. All would be very welcome, come along to play if you are a full member or watch if you are a social member, then participate in the refreshments afterwards.

If anyone is interested they can either email me e.stiles@talktalk. and I will contact them with further details of times etc, or put your names down in the social events sign-up book on the table at the club.

Even More Success


What a great year it is becoming for our lady bowlers with yet another success leading to another appearance at Royal Leamington Spa representing Wiltshire as champions in the Bowls England Senior Pairs competition.

The honour went to Sheila Garlick and Bev Lilley (pictured above)  who gained the title and the opportunity to compete with the best in the country at Leamington with an historic win over Wiltshire top bowlers and previous champions Alex Jacobs and Sue Cooke by 19 shots to 18 on their home patch at Box.

Well done ladies, Best wishes for the 4th August from all of us at Devizes Bowls Club.
