Club President John Jarvis and Vice President Chris Lewis

started the new season with a 'Spider' Competition for a beautiful 1 Litre bottle of Grouse Whisky that had been very kindly donated by JOHN HOLDEN, one of our in-door Players.

Our sincere thanks to you John!

The 'Spider' was followed by a hard fought 6-rink game in stunning weather between sides supporting The President and Vice-President.

The Dementia Oxfordshire Service is part of Age UK Oxfordshire and we support Clients over 65years of age, with a diagnosis of dementia and registered with a GP in Oxfordshire.

We supports not only those with dementia but their families and carers, to access appropriate services. We aim for individuals to live as well as possible, for as long as possible, in their own homes and remain active in the community. We also organise, support and signpost to dementia friendly groups and activities in Oxfordshire such as carers support groups and memory cafés. After our initial home visits, we remain a point of contact for our Clients and carers offering six monthly reviews. 


As the dementia progresses additional support maybe required including benefits, financial advice and guidance for families and carers. We also provide information on planning and end of life care including the often difficult decision about respite or moving into a care home facility. We guide and support families through this delicate and often complex process.


Our Service also has a Dementia Support Line, 01865 410210, manned by us the Dementia Advisers and is available for anyone, including Clients, relatives, carers and professionals to phone any time Monday –Friday 9-5pm. We are able to take self or family referrals and provide advice with appropriate practical/emotional support. Sometimes we may just be a listening ear when needed, often in times of crisis. Callers seem to appreciate they are calling a local service with an extensive knowledge of local services across Oxfordshire.

Please Take Extra Care on our Superb Indoor Rinks yes



The Indoor Bowls Carpet needs Your help to maintain it's Longevity and trueness of Play. Here are a few pointers that we must all consider when playing indoors:-


  1. Always wear bowling shoes with perfectly flat soles. 'Trainers' or other types of shoes with a tread on the soles can damage the carpet fibres and must not be used.
  3. Please do not wear your Bowling shoes outside for any reason, change them before venturing out of the club. Popping out to the car risks taking a stone, or some contaminant, onto the carpet resulting in considerable damage. If you do need to go out for a smoke, have you thought of adding a pair of 'shoe slip-overs' to your Bowling equipment?
  5. You must not use grippo or glycerine and rose water on your bowls. These will quickly get transferred to the carpet and cause expensive damage.
  7. Do not take food or drink onto the bowling green. It is easy to drop crumbs, chocolate or sticky sweets on to the carpet and coffee or sugary drinks will cause serious staining if spilled on to the bowling surface. 

And Finally, Please, No running on the Rink, it can damage the carpet and we don't want you to have any accidents by falling over or accidental contact with other Bowlers.

  2. Please pay attention to the above “rules” which apply to all, whether as a Visitor or a member, you know it makes sense, and it is for everybodys benefit. wink
