Annual Bowls Meeting

The morning of Saturday 5th November, following the usual coffee morning, was the annual bowls meeting convened at this time every year by the bowls committee. Reports were made by the secretary and the retiring captains and this was followed by the annual presentation of the captain’s and vice captains badges.

Both Tom Mullins and Alison Cross expressed their thanks to all the members who had supported them during the year and especially those who had supported the organised social and team events to raise funds for the motor neurone disease reaching the grand total or £3500.

The new captains Mike Mitcham and Julie Romijn announced that they had asked Kelvin Nash and Lynn Hicks to be their vice captain’s and had together decided that their charity for this year would be the Wiltshire Air Ambulance.

The meeting, through the chair, wished them both the very best of luck and success.

Bowls Wiltshire County Finals

10th September 2022

Saturday 10th September saw the Bowls Wiltshire County Finals return to the Devizes greens.

Amongst the first games played was the semi-final of the Ladies Unbadged 2 wood Singles.

Devizes’ Dawn Holt was drawn to play against Vanessa McCormack of Amesbury.
After an evenly matched start, Vanessa managed to pull ahead and Dawn admitted defeat after 18 ends.

Although very disappointed with her performance on the day, Dawn was heard to say,

“There’s always next year! If somebody had told me at the start of this season that I would end up playing in a County semi-final, I would have been delighted!   Congratulations to Vanessa on a match well played.”
