The 2018 season has come to an end and could be summed up in a few words: "could do better"!! It hasn't been the club's best season regardin results but I would like to think that once again the members have enjoyed every aspect of the club. Especially the "social" side with Bingo nights; Quiz nights; visits to the theatre, and most importantly welcoming new members to this great club. The highlight of the season was kept until the last day when Hollington Old Church Bowls Club won the League Cup (known as the Final Fling). Congratulations to Neville Newman (brilliant skip on the day), Ian Grant and Linda & Dave Farrell for bringing home the trophy!!

Ian Grant is organising another night at the White Rock Theater to see Beyond the Barricade. I know it is not until April 2019 but he needs to have names as soon as possible. There is a list in the club house.
A fantastic night was had by all at the club's Presentation and Dinner Night, held at the Horntye on December 7th. Massive thanks go to everyone who helped make the night such a great success. Pictures of the evening can be seen on the Photo Gallery page.
