May 2020 News

Resumption of Website.

Information for all members......

As we slowly return to bowling normality, the website will revert to it's usual format from Monday 1st June.

Over the past month there has been a decrease in the number of contributors to the site. There is a lot of time and work required to keep the magazine  running alongside, information, and, changes to dates and events from the different bowling organisations, which are now starting to come in.

Therefore, I respectfully ask that no more submissions are sent to the webmaster for the rest of this week.

Results of all outstanding competitions will be published at the end of the month.

I hope it has been of interest to those of you who have regularly kept in touch with the items and news.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has contributed to the website during Lockdown, it would have been difficult to keep it going without you.

Finally, please remember to keep safe and stay healthy.



Many thanks to you all,

Carol Windust.  Webmaster.

Welcome to our ...

stay in touch pages

For The Month of May

Staying in touch, an update.

Welcome Everyone, to the "Stay in Touch Page" for May.  As we  enter our second month of lock down we are continuing the "new style" website for as long as it takes! This could very well be for a while.
Today, is traditionally May Day and whilst none of us will be dancing for joy around the maypole, Morris Dancing on the Green or even the Bowling Rinks, we can at least count our blessings that we are so far, hopefully, staying healthy and safe.
I am pleased to say, that since it's launch, the pages have been a great success and have provided a focus and interest for members.
 I would like to thank all those, who have contributed so far, from the puzzle setters, the memory jerkers, the humorists and even those who like to display their baby bottoms!
The answers to the puzzles and quizzes etc: have now been published on the appropriate page. On each of the pages I have started a new sheet for the Month of May, so please keep sending me your contributions.
 We would still like photographs showing how you are coping (or not), with the lock down. This can be , things you are doing, items you have made, anecdotes, etc, etc. Don't forget the plan for a Lockswood Craft Fair at the end of all this, so if you are able to contribute by making items, they will be much appreciated. I still think you have plenty of time!  
Some people have put a great deal of effort into what they have sent for inclusion and it would be nice to get some feed back from members. If you would like to comment on anything, please email using the linkOnly positive comments please!

Clearing of Undergrowth

Looking from the car park

Looking back towards the car park from the road side.

Most Members will not have seen the work that Fareham Borough Council have been doing, to clear the undergrowth from the trees, down the path to the Clubhouse.

 Neil Fletcher has Kindly sent these photographs so that we can all see what a difference it has made.

Hopefully it will still be clear when we get back to bowling, but definitely no blackberries this year!
