Blooming good show for Avon Bowls Club

It gives me great pleasure to announce that, due to the hard work and enterprise of Steve Faulkner and his gardening team, (Sue and Basil), our Club Gardens have won a Gold Award in the Business, Leisure and Tourism Section of the South West in Bloom Contest 2019. We will receive a Certificate which will be displayed proudly and prominently in the Club.

This is exactly the type of news we need to publicise our club in a very positive light and to attract new members and attention from Councillors and residents alike, especially in the run up towards becoming a central and focal point of the new Campus.

I am sure that you will all want to share with me in thanking Steve and his family and helpers for this valuable contribution to raise the profile of the club and make us the envy of the County.

Calne BC launch new website

Calne Bowls Club has just launched a fresh new website ready for the 2019 season. The site has been designed and built by Ian Thomas of Highworth, who was also responsible for the Bowls Wiltshire site, along with several more clubs in Wiltshire and further afield – such as Babbacombe and Swanage.

The Calne Bowls Club Secretary said:
“starting a website from scratch was quite intimidating, having had no previous experience in this area. We decided to view various club websites that Ian had developed, and from this a ‘pick and mix’ of what would be ideal for Calne BC was determined. Ian was an excellent tutor who helped every inch of the way, using his experience to teach, guide and flag up potential pitfalls. Calne BC now has a website it can be proud of, plus the resources to keep it updated – which is very important.”
