Wendover Bowls Club news – May 2021
At last we will soon be allowed back on to our green. Even though there will be restrictions with the use of the clubhouse and numbers it is a huge step.
We did manage a few days play last summer before lockdown but most of us have not picked up a bowl for almost a year.
As I write this the green is still not usable as the grass is too long. One member tried a few shots the other day and despite his best efforts he could not get his bowl more than half way but we have started our usual three cuts a week and the mower gets lowered each time.
A more heartening sign is that fixture lists for matches against other clubs have appeared on the notice board in the Parrot House. Now why the lean-to at the rear of the Clubhouse is called the Parrot House I do not know. Certainly I have not met a parrot there and parrots and bowls seem a weird combination but bowlers have vivid imaginations and I have no doubt I will be told.
The most important thing is that at last we will be able to meet our friends again and enjoy their company.
Roll on Summer and warmer weather.
