BOWLS CLUB


PAST EVENTS


THE CHELSEA PENSIONERS  VISITED US
ON WEDNESDAY 17
th MAY 2017.
It was a great honour for the club to host a visit from these retired veteran Soldiers of the Queen.
They were surprisingly sprightly and happy individuals who really were an enormous pleasure to be with.
We now look forward to our return visit on Wednesday the 16th May 2018.
The Club is indebted to Phil and Margaret Armstrong whose efforts and attention to detail ensured a smooth and
 faultless event. And as always to our willing workers Norma, Jill, Linda, Martin, Lesley and all the rest.
And not forgetting our Captain for the Day, Carole Alder.
What follows are a few of the large number of photos. Please let me know if you want copies.
The specially made wheelchairs are made by Bradshaws Buggies and Guiseley Mobility.
Our grants of 9,754 and 2,200 from Sport England and the House Project respectively
enabled us to purchase two which we can now offer for the use of  wheelchair users who
would like to take up bowls in Peacehaven and Telscombe. Please contact us if you are at all interested.

On Thursday 15
th September 2016 we were visited by a Bowls England
representative team to mark the completion of our Pavilion Extension
and our Viewing Terrace.
As usual the sun shone on a memorable event enjoyed by all who were lucky enough to be there. The end result was a narrow win by just three shots for the BE Squad
led by

2016 BE President Michael Jennings.
We are indebted to Ross Clifton of Bexhill BC for his help in organising this event.

On Wednesday 18th May 2016 we welcomed the Sussex County Executive
who came to sample the delights of our spacious pavilion
and excellent bowling green.
The rain cleared and the sun shone on us as we all enjoyed a
light hearted but competitive match, followed by a sumptuous dinner.
The pictures below convey something of the relaxed enjoyment shared by all.

On Wednesday 15th April 2015 we were honoured by the visit of
HRH Prince Richard, the Duke of Gloucester
who came to Peacehaven to officially open our beautiful Big Park.
Three members of our Management team were among those invited to attend his welcome
by Peacehaven Town Council. The sun shone on the warmest day of the year to date.
Our Council Organiser Deborah Donovan can be justly proud of a job well done.

    HRH, intrigued by the prospect of a legless Sussex Martlett, suggests most bowlers are frequently similar.
We denied it, of course.

The then new Mayor of Peacehaven, Cllr. Robbie Robertson, visited us on Wednesday 14th May 2014 accompanied
 by a delegation from the Lady Boys of Bangkok performing in Brighton.
A fun day was enjoyed by all who attended.
