MORETON BOWLS CLUB
Our new season starts on Saturday April 20th at 2pm. The season runs through to the middle of September.
Our fixture list has something for everyone. We have mixed friendlies home and away against other clubs in surrounding counties. There are ladies only fixtures and mixed league games. There is also an internal league on Wednesday afternoons. So, whatever your preference, we can offer you plenty of friendly games at our club throughout the season.
We also host touring teams from around the country and Gloucestershire County games.
If you are new to the game we are running an Open Day on Sunday 9th June, 10am to 4pm. Free to anyone who would like to try the game and enjoy our hospitality. There will be more information about this in next month’s edition and on our website.
Try out our new Facebook page. There will be lots of information on there about our club activities.
Do come and join our club for this season. We are looking forward to it. Why not be part of it?
Contact our Club Captain Steve Aldridge 01608 654060 for more information.
NEWSLETTER MARCH 2019
ANOTHER SEASON IS UPON US, SO LETS HOPE FOR SOME HAPPY BOWLING, LIVELY SOCIALISING AND LOVELY WEATHER!
SUBSCRIPTIONS – it was agreed at last Novembers AGM to increase full membership from £80 TO £84. Social Membership remains at £15 and all other ancillary costs will remain unchanged. Subs are due by the start of the season please (20th April). Please note that if paying by cheque, be very precise and make cheque payable to ‘Moreton in Marsh Bowling Club’, not just Bowls Club or Moreton Bowls Club. This is because of new technology!
LEAGUES – KINETON & NCL – A very warm welcome to Andy Cullington, who is our new League Captain. Andy has only been with us a year and is already proving to be a great addition to the club. Many of you will know him as a major winner in our club competitions last year. He is also handling publicity and is on the ‘green team’. Thanks Andy for all your efforts. Thanks also to Steve Aldridge and Jane Clarke for all their efforts in managing the league last year.
WEDNESDAY LEAGUE – It has been agreed to rejuvenate this league and create more teams playing more frequently. Therefore we are making it a triples competition and limiting each team to four players. We are still looking for more players, so if you are interested in joining for the first time or rejoining contact Roger Formby (01451 830439) for more details.This is a handicap league and is great fun for 2 hours each Wednesday afternoon. All abilities are catered for and everyone is welcome.

MORETON-IN-MARSH BOWLS CLUB FACEBOOK PAGE
Andy Cullington has set up a Facebook page for the Club. It is in our interest to get ‘liked’. If you have a Facebook page of your own, please ‘like’ our Facebook page. If you know any friends or acquaintances with a Facebook account, they don’t have to be interested in our club or bowls, get them to "like" our Club page too.
We are hoping that our Facebook page may increase people’s awareness of our existence and may attract much needed new bowlers to our club.
With best wishes,
from the Committee
