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.

Westcliff Trophy Day

Sunday 14th July, starting at 9:30 am

Help needed

The annual Westcliff Trophy Day requires a great deal of planning and organising which has been in the capable hands of Clive Hughes and Roger Tasker for many years. This year they are stepping down and we are looking for some willing volunteers to step in, for this year only. Clive and Roger are both willing to guide and assist you.

We would like to have a team in place ready for 21st July so if you are willing to help with running this major event please add your name to the sheet on the notice-board.


The competition is for two wood triples, with the teams drawn before-hand from the entries. Four games of nine ends are played, with a time limit of 55 minutes. Two points are awarded for a win, one each for a draw. The winning team is the one that accumulates the most points. If the result is tied on points, it will go to shots.

Marker’s Grading

Congratulations to Frank Bertram and Lesley and Martin Paterson who have successfully passed their E.B.U.A. Marker’s assessment.

This is a relatively new qualification introduced following Bowls England’s concerns over the standard of marking at major competitions.

They, along with two candidates from other clubs, were assessed on their marking ability and knowledge of the relevant Laws of the Sport. Frank, Lesley and Martin achieved a Grade 2 level which means they have been assessed as fully competent to mark at County level competitions. They are the first in the county to achieve this standard.
