President's Day 2019

Lockswood Bowling Club President, Pat Newman, held a very successful day on Sunday the 9th June. Pat's special guests for the day were Bill Griffiths and his wife Val from Fareham Bowling Club, whom she thanked for being part of her special day.


 The weather was kind after a mixed week of weather and everyone was able to enjoy the warm sunshine.

The afternoon began with a "Spider" which was won by Ann Wilkinson, followed by a match between the President's Team and Captain's Team.  It was lovely to see so many people taking part in the afternoon with seven full rinks teams. There was a very friendly spirit and everyone enjoyed themselves, with the Captain's Team the victors (after a "Harry" adjustment!) by one shot.

The match was followed, as always, by a lovely meal prepared by the ladies in the kitchen, Margaret Gorman, Anne Scott, Sheila Mckenzie, Gill Grindey and Wendy Nunn. Also, Kay Walsh who prepared the cucumbers and played!  Pat expressed her appreciation for their hard work by presenting them each with a floral gift.

Pat honoured all the Past Captains present, by presenting them each with a gift, before Jan Collins praised Pat for her many years of service to Lockswood Bowling Club as  Ladies' Captain, Catering Manager and now President.

The day was a great success made special for Pat by everyone who attended

and the proceeds from today will go towards her charity which is the Renal Unit at the Queen Alexandra Hospital.

Many Congratulations to Pat on a lovely day which showed just what a friendly club we are, and we all hope that this President's Day will be a special memory for her to keep.



Apologies if you are finding that the S&D Men's Leagues are not up to date week on week.

The reason for this is that there are often delays in results being published on the Southampton and District Bowling Association sites.
