We have received the sad news that Ron Glass, a long standing member of the old County Ground Bowls Club, passed away on Friday 25th of January.
Ron’s funeral will be held at 1.30pm on Tuesday 19th February at the Kingsdown Crematorium.
To All Swindon Bowls Club Members.
As many of you will know, our recent Ron West Trophy Tournament was yet again an outstanding success. The weather was kind to us, there were some excellent matches played and everyone involved had a good time.
As a result of this years event, the Club was able to donate £162 to both MacMillan Cancer Support and the Alzheimer’s Society and letters of thanks from both charities are on display on the noticeboard in the clubhouse.
Congratulations go to this years winner, Mrs Jean McCaffery, who also won this tournament in 2017. An incredible achievement, well done Jean.
Sincere thanks must also go to Derek Caddy, Bill Pearce and all the other members involved in making this tournament a huge success.
Pete Steer found a white metal ring with some, what might be, semi precious stones, beside the green, just before the S&D match against Supermarine on the evening of Thursday 16th August.
If anyone has lost a ring fitting this description, or knows of someone who has lost a ring, please ask behind the bar.
There are also other items of lost property which have never been claimed.
A reminder of a fantastic day of bowls, enjoyed by all.
What a fine body of men.

Fourteen teams played for places in the semi-finals and finals and at the end of the week the successful teams were “Westlecot”, “Penhill Boys”, “No More Novices” and “Ciderheads”.
The Eventual winner of this years competition was Westlecot with the Penhill Boys finishing second.
After every game, all players enjoyed a lovely meal cooked by the SBC Ladies and Thursday saw the drawing of the fantastic raffle organised by Chris O’Leary.
Our thanks to all the ladies for your hard work during the week and a special thank you to our sponsor A.C.Watson and Son Ltd.
