We still need a Club Secretary 

After years of sterling work for the club Geoff has decided to retire as his  role as secretary, this means that we need another person for this position. If anyone would like to put their name forward the club would be grateful as without a secretary we will have no club as it cannot run without one.

So please consider.


FINALS DAY

Well done to all winners and runners up on the weekend of finals who played in blistering heat. Congratulations to Peter Haines and Gail Trew who were crowned Men and Ladies club champions after winning their 4 Woods competitions

Roy Gibbons, Former President and a Founder member of Wing Village Bowls Club

It is with great sadness that we report the passing away of Roy Gibbons. Roy was much loved member of our Bowls Club and, at an advanced age, was a regular visitor to our home matches and AGMs. He was particularly fond of the Spooner Trophy Competition (where he was always a guest of honour with Mrs Spooner) and also the annual match with Little Gaddesden Bowls Club for the Bread Pudding Trophy.


Great News for 2021

At last we have a watering system installed so no doing it by hand in the future which is wonderful news. 




Good News at Last 

We have just received a grant of £10,000 from Buckinghamshire County Council!!

This has come from a fund provided by central government and administered by County Councils to assist Sports Clubs such as ours to survive the problems incurred by loss of income due to the Coronavirus.  There appear to be no restrictions on what we decide to spend it on, so we will just need to use it wisely.

Many thanks to Geoff for securing this for us.
