BOWLS WILTSHIRE (MX) V TROWBRIDGE POLICE 50TH ANNIVERSARY
AT HOLT 2ND JULY 2017
The Bowls Wiltshire mixed team spent a very enjoyable afternoon at Holt on the 2nd July playing against Trowbridge Police who were celebrating their 50th Anniversary. There was a lot of banter and good humour throughout the game with BW winning by 138 shots to 110.
Grateful thanks was given to Holt BC for not only hosting the fixture but also providing a super meal which was appreciated by all. Fines collected for the BW Charity-Wiltshire Air Ambulance amounted to £65.40, BW Chair June thanked everybody for their generosity.
All in all a wonderful afternoon.
Match report from June Corbett:
The annual fixture between the Bowls Wiltshire mixed team and the Salisbury & District Association was this year hosted at Pewsey Vale BC on 25 June. The game was played in a friendly but competitive game with Bowls Wiltshire coming out as winners by 125 shots to 105.
Thanks was given to Pewsey Vale for their hospitality and the splendid meal provided after the game.
As customary fines were imposed for various misdemeanours raising a creditable figure of £56.62 for the Wiltshire Air Ambulance, being the BW Charity for 2017. BW Chair June thanked all for their generosity and for a most enjoyable afternoon.

Match report from June Corbett for game played on Sunday 7 May:
Our first match of the season against the Swindon & District Association was played in a friendly but competitive game with BW losing by 9 shots – 114 to 123. The weather was kind to us, lots of sunshine and much warmer than the cold recently experienced. We must thank Highworth for hosting the match and the facilities provided were much appreciated by all.
The BW charity for 2017 is for the Wiltshire Air Ambulance, and fines imposed for various misdemeanors initiated a start for the support for this service.

On Sunday 10th July a BW Mixed team went to Chippenham Park to help with their celebrations for the Queen’s 90th Birthday. The game was played in good spirit as always with the usual banter across the rinks – particularly between the ‘3 Stooges’ who have become an integral part of these very enjoyable afternoons. Unfortunately the weather intervened with a few ends to go and play was abandoned as the heavens opened. This did not put a damper on the proceedings and everyone packed up the bag full of wet kit which has been a regular feature of the 2016 season and adjourned to the club house. The Club members had worked very hard to put on a lovely meal which was enjoyed by all after a toast was made to the Queen. Once the eating was done the usual speeches took place with the, now customary, list of ‘June’s Fines’ (recorded in a special little note book!) which help to swell the funds in the BWM President’s Charity box for Wiltshire Air Ambulance.
Thank you very much to Chippenham Park BC for a lovely afternoon.
On Sunday 3rd July a BW Mixed side went to Swindon West End to play a Friendly game as part of the Club’s 90th Anniversary celebrations. The sun shone and everyone appeared to enjoy the game which was won by West End (114 -102) The Club had worked very hard to provide a lovely meal and the raffle was well supported. BW Chair, June, collected various fines for random – often unwitting!- misdemeanors which all helped to swell the Wiltshire Air Ambulance funds.
Thank you to all at Swindon West End for a very enjoyable afternoon and best wishes for the rest of your special season.
On Sunday June 12th a BW Mixed team went to Highworth BC to help them to celebrate their 80th Anniversary. The game was played in good spirit on a lovely sunny afternoon. There was an excellent meal prepared for us all when we came off the green and everyone enjoyed the social atmosphere – although a number of people were fined by June Corbett, BW Chair, for various random misdemeanors ! All proceeds to the Wiltshire Air Ambulance.
The game was won by 119 – 106 by Highworth and the Top Rink for BW was Sue Ochyra with Janice Bull, Jim Cremin and Karen Guy.
A big thank you to Highworth for their hospitality and congratulations to the Club on its 80th Anniversary.
