JOHN HIPPERSON – MEMORIAL DAY
We held a memorial day for John on the 28th October 2023 and what a great day it was, enjoyed by all who attended. We raised £1600 from rink fees, raffle and BBQ including donations of £350 from Reepham Nomads Bowls Club, £100 from S&L Restoration and £50 from Maxine Rushton and together with the £550 raised from the outdoor bowls event held in August a total of £2150 will be donated to East Anglia Air Ambulance. Sincere thanks to everyone who supported the two events and hopefully we can make this an annual competition for the John Hipperson Memorial Trophy kindly donated by John’s family. Just for the record Roundwood were victorious over the two games.
As a result of some of the summer leagues finishing early we had some end of season mini leagues and competitions. The winners of these competitions were, Tuesday Morning Pairs Cup – MISFITS, ( Dave Bunn, Miker Kett, David Gray and Keith Land). Thursday Evening Pairs Cup – M. STILES, ( Maureen & Barry Stiles, Frances Grummett, John & Bev Moar). Thursday Evening Pairs Plate – HAS BEENS, ( Richard Eglington & John Tuddenham). Well done to all those who participated.
We held the Fantastic Fives competition on Monday evening 11th September 2023 and what a fantastic evening it was. This was a new competition where two teams were drawn against each other and played singles, pairs, triples and fours over two rinks. The feedback from those members who participated was that they would love to have another fantastic fives evening. The overall winners on the night were the team of Ivan Hall, David Poynter, John Webber, Linda Farrow and Lynne Chalkley ably assisted by their substitute David Chalkley.
Special thanks must go to Mike Kett for all his time and effort in organising the event and ensuring it went so smoothly on the night.
It has come to the attention of the committee that members who book a rink but have to cancel for some reason are not cancelling the booking in the diary. Please remember to cancel your booking if you are unable to attend as this deprives other members from having use of that rink. You can either telephone or email us to cancel if you cannot get to the club.
The Social Club have now provided a list of upcoming events. To view the list please visit the Social Page.
HEALTH & SAFETY
In the interests of reducing accidents can we please ask all members who have any slip, trip or fall in the playing area to ensure it is recorded in the accident book, located in the Roundwood Bowls Club office. This will help us to see if there are any common factors than we can mitigate against and hopefully prevent others having similar accidents. Any injury in the playing area should additionally be reported to the duty first aider from UB&L.
All accidents or injuries that happen in the car park, bar area or function room must be reported to the duty first aider from UB&L, for inclusion in their accident book, ensuring that the incident is recorded in case of any future claim.
