Bowls is Back - Letter from the Chairman

Dear members,

Bowls is back, the good news is that after all the disappointment of 2020 we shall soon be back playing bowls on the Wicklewood Green and I write to invite you to join the club for the 2021 season. The membership fees for the year are playing members £25 and social members £5.

The Club now has online banking and so I would encourage all who are able to pay their subscription by BACS direct to do so, the details you need are :-

Name: Wicklewood Bowling Club
Sort code: 20-99-08
Account number:- 20940003

For those who still need to pay by cheque or cash then please pay our Treasurer, Mike Gamble.
If you need to post a cheque, Mike's address is 8 St Andrews Close, Hingham, Norfolk, NR9 4JT.

Please can all subscriptions be paid by the 1st June 2021.

The other piece of good news is that an automatic irrigation system has been installed which hopefully will keep our green in good condition throughout the season.

The opening date has not been decided, but will be posted here as soon as it is agreed.

Lastly as ever we are looking for new members so if you know anyone who is interested in playing bowls of whatever standard, invite them along.
We are so lucky to have such excellent facilities so we need a vibrant and thriving Club to utilise them to the full.

Your Sincerely,


Alan Shildrake, Chairman
