Old fixtures books/lists

A call for help.

Averill is putting together an archive of the Club and has asked for help. She has a full set of Fixtures Books going back to 1955, but is asking if any member has any that are earlier than this. As the amalgamation of the Ladies’ and Men’s Clubs was relatively recent, the earlier Fixtures Books will be separate ones for Ladies and Men.

Averill will welcome any information that members can provide.

Coloured shoes

If you’ve heard about rule changes concerning coloured shoes, here’s clarification.

Bowls England have changed the dress code for all rounds, within counties and at National Championships at Leamington. The Dress Code (Appendix A and appendix B of Championship Rules and Regulations November 2018) now reads “… flat soled bowling shoes.”

This means that players can wear coloured bowls shoes for all rounds of those competitions covered by the Regulations.

For any events other than Bowls England national events, clubs or county can specify their own dress code.

Captain’s charity 2018/2019

Friends of Bristol Eye Hospital raise funds to improve the care and treatment of patients at the hospital. They help to pay for medical equipment, facilities, patient comforts, staff resources and generally to support the charitable work of the hospital.  They can also help patients or former patients in distress or need.

Most of their grants provide medical equipment which is beyond the purse of the NHS; items may be the latest technology and therefore expensive, or they may provide extra items of standard equipment to supplement the NHS provision where having more means treating more patients more quickly.
