Presidents Day - April 2017

Presidents Day - April 2017

  Group Photo 2017  

The 2017 season got underway with a successful 'Presidents Day'
President Barry, as usual, was in a sparkiling mood with a witty and entertaining speech
But before all the formalities we had the annual President's v Captain's game.
The weather was kind and the green started to take swing as the game progressed
So it looks like a good season all round.

Below are just a few photos of the day.
No bowling action shots I,m afraid as your
Ace Photographer was out on the green
popping his woods on the jack !

Sandford Station - May Day 2017

I have just had an email from Club Member Sarah Hayes
informing me that she has been asked by Sandford
if we can have a team or two for a roll up on the above date.

Now Sarah is aware that the majority of club memebers
will be away on the club tour to Barnstable on that date,
but if there are club members not on the tour, then
why not give it a try.
Sarah says that she is there on most Sunday
mornings from10.30am onwards

So if you are interested and want to know more
then have a chat with Sarah on Presidents Day

Banwell's latest resident

Is 'George' guarding the Green?

A new resident has moved into Banwell in the shape of 'George'
a stunning graffiti artwork depicting a crouching soldier
in full kit holding a rifle.
The painting has been spray mounted onto a house in West Street
only yards from the village war memorial and overlooking our green
I understand permission was granted to the artist by the owners
of the house and the artwork was created
as a mark of respect to the armed forces.

It all happens in Banwell

* When you drive into Tiverton follow the brown and white signs for
‘The Grand Western Canal’ with a picture of a canal barge.
These will take you into the Canal Car Park,
as you drive along the car park look for a gate
in the wall on the left which is the entrance to the club.
To avoid the car parking charges drop off the passengers and bags,
exit the car park turning right and then take the first right into
‘The Avenue’ where you can park FOC,
The club is now on your right and you can walk up a narrow lane to the club.

I will be in touch later - Thanks Graham Millard
