As the bowling season starts the summer opening of the green was somewhat muted as the Mini Beast from the East dumped a large amount of snow on to it. However the various leagues are well advanced in the announcements of their fixtures which all can be found on their associated web sites.

It's still open

For the first time the green is still open to use and it will not be closing for the winter months. The only stipulation is that if there is no snow or frost on the green then keep off, otherwise you can play bowls, but don't expect a short cut green as it is essential that the cut is longer than the summer months to ensure it can cope with the extreme weather. So fill your boots, and if the weather is suitable get on the green and have some fun.

Its all over

The evening also saw Cath and Sheila, treat all those who turned up with free hot dogs and pulled pork sandwiches.

September Parish Magazine Article

posted 29 Aug 2017, 05:03 by stephen wall

I would like to start this article with a little Complex news. Most of the Bowls Club members will already know that the sports ground in Loak Rd is now under new ownership. Albrighton Sports Complex successfully completed the purchase of the site from the Albrighton Sports and Social Club, we have now embarked on a new chapter in the organisations history, and our initial aim is to firmly establish the site as a community asset, the Complex is now seeking other organisations who wish to use the facility, and thereby extending the number of activities at the site. I know that all the members of both the Football and Bowls Club would like to thank both Bob Silvester and Gerry Connolly for taking on the onerous task of all the negotiations with all the solicitors concerned to secure the purchase of the site, a task that was met with one hurdle after another, well done to the both of you.

As far as the Bowls club is concerned the playing season is drawing to an end and this summer has seen plenty of activity at the club. Socially the club were heavily involved in the running of the Summer Fair raising much needed funds for the Sports Complex. The summer lunch was well supported as was the BBQ where the ladies pulled together to provide catering for 80 people and Richard organised the bowling for over 50 competitors, despite the ever changing weather these functions were extremely successful, not only for the quantity and quality of the food, but the organisation of the bowling ensured everyone had a superb couple of days. The next major event is the invitation open, which is on Saturday 3 September when this all day event of food and bowling will take place.

From the league bowling front, the clubs teams have been extremely active throughout the season and once again the club should be bringing home some silverware in the Division 5 of the Mid-Shropshire League as well as the inaugural season of the Highley League (I just hope I have not spoken too soon). A detailed report on the leagues and Competitions can be found on the clubs website www.albrightonbowls.co.uk. As previously mentioned the season is due to close at the end of September which will also see the clubs Floodlit Competition start, members are asked to keep an eye on the notice board for the entry form, as this popular competition will see a BBQ on the finals night which historically the last night of bowling for the season. Once this is over we will then be focusing on the winter social activity which will be published shortly.

Happy Bowling and I will see you on the green.
