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.

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.
Since its launch in March, the Village Fete Working Party has been working hard to deliver the 2018 Village Fete. It is now set to take over the Orpen Hall & fields on Saturday 1st September between 12 noon and 4 pm during which time there will be something for everybody going on.

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.
