BRAMPTON: Terminus Bowling Club centenary celebrations

As part of its centenary celebrations, the Terminus Bowling Club had an away day in Scarborough. Forty-two people took part composed of club members and their guests. Twenty-four members took part in “round robin” competition hosted by the Borough Bowling Club of Scarborough, who provided exclusive use of their green for the day and refreshments. The winning team in the competition was John Badger, John Poxon and Tom Gofton with the runners-up Dennis Goodhind, Peggy Fletcher and Mick Roberts. Those not taking part in the bowling availed themselves of the delights of Scarborough.

On Thursday, July 18, 11 members competed for the Bradley Cup, a singles competition, which was won by Rob Wadd. Runner-up was David Dolman.

The links with the local schools continues. Four classes from year 5 and year 6 visited the green to learn about the game of bowls and to take part in activities on the green. Pupils from Brookfield School year 7 have had sessions on the green on Thursday evenings after school, 3.15pm until 4.15pm.

The Wednesday morning free coaching sessions for potential new members are proving very popular. Everyone is welcome and invited to have a go at this fun game of crown green bowls.

The next red letter day in the centenary year is on Saturday, August 10, when members and their guests will enjoy the gala day of fun activities and a hog roast.
