The Heckington Bowling Club 2019 Presentation Evening was held on Friday 31st January 2020 at the Barge & Bottle Public house in Sleaford. Over 20 bowlers attended the evening which was hosted for the first time in the pubs annex. The seating arrangements differed by having one long table seating everyone together which worked better than having two or three tables separating the guests and having your backs to the other tables. Plus, we were isolated slightly from the general public. The majority of prize winners were in attendance who were warmly applauded on receipt of their winning trophies and certificates. Those that were not able to attend will receive their awards later in the year.Last year there were a number of individuals who could not remember what food they had ordered which resulted in one or two selecting their options as it arrived at the table, so this year everyone had a piece of card upon arrival to indicate their culinary selection. This worked very well and will be repeated next year.The only complaint that reached me was that; there was insufficient “Bailey’s Cream” put into the “Bailey’s Cheesecake Pudding”. No doubt this says a lot about the boozy lot of bowlers we have at the club ??? (Tongue in cheek)All in all it was a great success and everyone I have spoken to indicated that they really enjoyed the evening. Long may that continue.
The club held a coffee morning on Saturday the 12th of October, and we had a tremendous response from the membership and members of the public. With the Raffle, cake stall, win a watch and name that teddy we raised over £260 for the club. A sincere thank you to all the people who helped to make the day a success from making tea, working on the stalls and to all of those who donated cakes and raffle prizes.
On Behalf Of Heckington Bowls Club ” THANK YOU ” 🤗🤗
On the 3rd of September twelve members of the club came along and helped with the end of season work. This this involved scarifying, coring, cutting, reseeding and topdressing the green. Tea and cake was provided by Mezz.😋 All together the work took two days, and since then the green has been cut spiked and sprayed twice and is looking in a great condition. The work will continue over the winter and by next spring the green should be 100% better than last season.🤔
On behalf of Sid and myself, we would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to all the members for all their hard work.
