Letter from ABC Secretary

Dear Bowling Member,

We were due to hold our AGM on Wednesday 25th November in the club house. Your commitee under current circumstances and Government guidlines feels that it would not be safe to do so. Therefore members of the existing commitee are willing to stand for another term although with the sad passing of our secretary Steve Goodenough and Website manager Roy Dickson, also Chris Holmes Chaiman and commitee member Ted Eley stepping down this means there are four positions to be filled.

If you would be interested in joining the commitee please put your name forward. The Secretary and Website manager positions have been filled by members of the existing commitee. Norman Oakey has already shown interest in joining our commitee leaving three positions.

Chairman - Vacant

President - Mick Jelfs

Vice President - Dave Drinkwater

Secretary Phil Gladden

Treasurer - Derek Smith

Weekend Captain - Bryan Ogilvie

Weekday Captain - Chris Twomey

Fixtures Secretary - Ian Dunn

General Commitee

1. Graham Tyrrell

2. Peter Wells - Website Manager

3. Norman Oakey

4. Vacant

5. Vacant

Any objections to the above please inform the Secretary in writing signed and dated with your reasons

Under General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) all organisations must have a Privacy Policy to detail how we handle the members information. This is laid out in our Privacy Policy which we have published on the New Members page. All members should take time to read this.



Guests are admitted to the club only when signed in by a member to a maximum of three times in any one year unless attending with a visiting bowls club or when a premise licence is in force for a ticketed event, quiz night or public event.

This rule applies to members’ husbands, wives, partners, and family where additional membership has not been taken out.

The committee is aware that these rules are being ignored which puts our licence at risk. Consequently, bar staff and committee may request proof of membership where this is in doubt.

Membership cards should be produced when requested. Alternatively there is a list of members in the club which can be checked.

We regret the need for this measure and trust members will not be offended if asked for proof of membership.
