Stratton Churchway Bowls Club


It’s with great sadness that on Sunday 13th September 2020 our friend, long serving club member, ex-club president and club stalwart Dave Humphreys passed away.
Dave had been at the club for well over 40 years and had been instrumental in the club's survival in the late 1970’s when things were tough for the club. Through the following decades Dave gave his time and committed so much to the club, he was a key figure in the club launching the floodlight gala in the 1980’s which is still an annual success over 35 years later.  Dave held numerous officer roles at the club over the years, his most recent was club president which he stepped back from a few years ago. Dave was a great club member, a great player on the green in his day, a proud Welshman and a great friend to many of us and it’s a sad time.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this difficult time.

Gentleman 

The details below is a copy of the email received from the Secretary of Swindon & District B.A.

 

Hi All,

I trust that this finds you and your families safe and well.

 
No doubt your Club will have received the latest advice/guidance from Bowls England, issued this week, on how best to proceed should you wish to open your Green. Having reviewed the situation I am contacting you to let you know that the S&D Committee feel that with the on-going restrictions regarding safe distancing it will not be realistic or safe to proceed with any league games this year. We have therefore taken the decision today to cancel completely the 2020 Afternoon and Evening Leagues.
 
Regards,
 
Trevor Durrant
Secretary
Swindon & District B.A.
