Woods Bowls Club Review of 2021

Review of 2021 Bowling Season at Woods

In Woods' review of 2021 Bowls' Big Weekend delivered

In their review of 2021, Woods Bowls Club recorded competitive success and growth in membership numbers!

Woods started playing competitive games against other clubs again in early May.  Then the focus was on their annual open day, which this year was timed to coincide with Bowls England’s ‘Bowls Big Weekend’.  The club even managed to feature on BBC Essex’s ‘The Quest’ on Sunday 23rd May by being the final destination; Barry & Liana made it in time to win their challenge!

Following this, the open day was a MASSIVE success with 50 people trying bowls out (they nearly ran out of Tea, cake and Bowls!) Around 30 people have now joined the club.

Annual Village Fete

After the success of the Queen’s Birthday Celebrations many people felt that it was time to resurrect the West Bergholt Annual Village Fete.  We can envisage an event taking place some time around the August Bank Holiday weekend, based in the Orpen Hall and on the Lorkin Daniell Field offering:

  • Stalls,
  • Games,
  • Veg/Flower Shows,
  • Competitions,
  • Music,
  • Food,
  • Your idea here?

Would you like to be involved in organising an Annual West Bergholt Fete?

Do you have ideas about what the Fete could consist of?

Do you know someone else who might?

Then come along to the first Village Fete Working Party meeting on Monday 14th November at 7.30pm in the John Lampon Hall, Lexden Road.

Anyone welcome! All ideas appreciated!

This will not be in competition with the School’s Summer Fayre, the PTA are keen to be involved, as they were for the QEII 90th Celebrations.

For any information, please contact Laura Walkingshaw (Parish Clerk) on 01206 240772
