Wendover Bowls Club – May 2022

April heralds the end of our indoor season and the start of matches outdoors. We already have started regular grass cutting even though it isn’t growing much yet. The green has survived the winter fairly well, despite the attention of a band of rooks who decided to go into the turf cutting business. We resorted to three sinister black kites flying from long poles as deterrence which worked well apart from going on walkabout in the gales we had. At present it looks like Blackpool beach as the kites have been given honourable retirement and been replaced by children’s windmills.

This year we will be able to enjoy our opening season supper which was cancelled last year due to Covid. Another sign that things are slowly getting back to normal. Let’s hope that the resurgence in infection rates doesn’t set us back again as we have a full fixture list.

Don’t forget that we will hold open evenings throughout May every Friday from 6 o’clock. If you would like to give bowling a go all we ask is that you wear flat shoes that won’t damage the green. A friendly welcome awaits…go give it a whirl!!
