25/04/2014 Re-arranging Herald Cup Games
Please can I first re-iterate to everyone that any results or postponements of Herald Cup games need to come to me, ideally by E Mail from the captain or secretary of your teams. Several clubs have failed to let me know the outcome of their games tonight directly and I have had to rely on people from other clubs to give me the information .I believe that the only match played tonight was Dudley Dell v Coombs Wood A but I only know this due to a post on Facebook by one of the team members. Tallboats v Coombs Wood B is the only match I have had no update on. All others have been postponed. Due to the busy nature of league and competition bowls at this time of year I have decided to allow teams to rearrange the matches between themselves. In order to get the games completed before the next round and to give teams ample time to rearrange them, all outstanding games must be completed NO LATER THAN WEDNESDAY 14th MAY.
Once the dates have been arranged between opponents, PLEASE INFORM ME so I know when to expect the results to come in. Thank you .Regards Chris Lambert

23/04/2014 Ladies Singles and Doubles Competitions - Closing date for entries is Tuesday 29th April.  All entries to Joan Taylor.  Qualifying rounds are played on a Tuesday night when there are no League matches.  Derek Brookes, Association Secretary.

17/04/2012 'Mary Stevens Park green is in a public park and the Local Authority also use
 the 'main house' as offices. They are moving a bigger department into the house which is putting pressure on the parking in the park grounds. Can I draw to the attention of teams visiting us, particularly for afternoon matches, that time allowance should be made for possible parking difficulties.' Many thanks Roger Wynne Bowls Secretary Mary Stevens Park Seniors
