Latest Roundwood News.......



Roundwood Bowls Club is an indoor bowls club with just under 400 members playing in friendly roll ups, internal leagues and county competitions. With over 60 members in their eighties, some of whom find it difficult to play for two hours, it was decided to look into providing a wheelchair to help them continue bowling. We quickly discovered that the cost of a chair, £2500, was beyond our means, so we started fundraising. Six months later, thanks to the generosity of the following people and organisations, Tesco (Drayton), Taverham Parish Council, Yorkshire Building Society, Taverham Lions, John Jarrold Trust, Mike Carey and Roundwood Social Club, we have four members currently using the chair and we are looking to purchase a second one this year.

Thanks are also due to Sue Hunter who, working enthusiastically and vigorously, was responsible not only for finding the sponsors but also for organising money raising events.

The fault with the Rink Availability page has now been corrected.




This year the underlay was replaced and the carpet turned and re-laid. A problem with water having seeped into the ditch was discovered. Wooc was seriously affected.
