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.
