Our first Junior session will be held at 10.30am this coming Saturday (1st April). Anyone under the age of 16 is welcome to come along and have a try at bowling. All equipment is provided and you just need to wear trainers. What’s more the first session is free. You can find us at the back of Ormskirk Cricket Club on Altys Lane. Visit Ormskirkbowlingclub.com/junior for more details and see our short video below.
We are requesting help to get the club ready for the new season this Sunday.
Please can you bring hoes to clear the debris off the carpet in the gutters to install the covering. Also cutters/loppers to trim the branches from the trees. The pavilion also probably needs a tidy up and a general pre-season spring clean is appropriate. Some of the pot holes also need refilling.
Since starting to use easyfundraising at the start of February the Club has already raised over £55! Have you signed up yet? It doesn’t cost you a penny but the Club gets a donation every time you shop online with a wide variety of retailers, holiday & insurance, and many other companies. Also sign up your partner, relatives and friends if they are the ones who shop online.
Just a reminder of the above event taking part at the Aughton Institute. There will also be an opportunity to pay your annual membership fees if you prefer to do this by cash or cheque rather than BACS.
Please reply, if you have not already done so, if you intend to come along just so we can gauge numbers.
We are holding a pre-season social at the Aughton Institute on Thursday 6th April at 7.30pm. The evening will commence with the presentation of trophies for last season followed by a couple of indoor bowling games and Ian’s famous horse racing game. Please bring some change if you would like to join in.
There will also be an opportunity to pay your annual membership fees, if you prefer to do this by cash or cheque rather than online.
We look forward to seeing you then. Please e-mail back if you will be attending so we can advise the venue regarding numbers.
