It is with regret that members are informed of the recent death of

Peter Ashwell at the age of 93.

Peter was a Member of Oxford City & County Bowls Club for well over 30 years, a previous President of the Club and was later awarded Life Membership.


Peter was such a stalwart of the Club and for years actually ran 3 Open Gala days a year outside in May, July and September!  Can you imagine all the work involved?  There were always 24 teams so all 3 outdoor greens were utilised and they were so popular that  you had to fill your entry form in for the next year after each Gala Day to be sure of a place the following year! 


An experienced and exceptionally regarded Player, both Indoors and Outdoors, Peter was an inspiration to many new Players of the Game and with his natural, friendly personality, he ensured that any member playing in his team would be regarded with the utmost respect, regardless of their ability.

PETER will be sorely missed by all Bowlers

Our sincere condolences go to his wife, Edna, in this difficult time.
