Harold Winstone

For those who do not know Harold has Encephalitis and is very ill. His family has asked that club members do not telephone them. I have been made contact for any updates and will let members know by way of notices in the club. I am willing to accept calls from members should you want up to date information


I was pleased that so many of you turned out for my President's day. I invited rinks from Banbury Central, Kidlington, Kingston Bagpuiize, Watlington and Witney Town. Together with other club members it made a match of eight rinks. My team won but on the day I think it was the game of bowls that was the winner.

We had a very good meal provided by Jenny and her team. The spider was won by Margaret Stacey and with the raffle we raised £ 230.00 for Macmillan Cancer Support. I must thank my wife Liz for all her hard work during the day and for her support during the season so far.
