Retirement of a "couple" of Greenkeepers at end of the summer season 2018
Sadly we announce that Sandra and Rod Smale have decided to concentrate on cutting their own grass at home after four years at PBBC.
The Management Committee, Green Team and all members of PBBC are very grateful for the tremendous contribution that Sandra and Rod have made in keeping our bowling green surface in tip top condition. We wish them both well in their retirement.
In 2017 they were awarded the coverted IOG Industry Award "Greenkeeper/Team" of the year.
A further article on our the Green Team will appear shortly

Saturday 2nd November Annual Dinner Dance & Presentations evening (see "Events" drop down menu)
Monday 4th November 2019
Bar Members Celebrate
Potters Bar Bowls Club held their annual Dinner & Dance at Old Fold Manor Golf Club, when over 80 members enjoyed a four course meal.
In addition to the competition trophies, the club present two individual trophies. The ‘Anne Clarke Plate’ was presented by Anne Clarke in memory of her late husband. Anne herself is a Life member of the club, an ex President and Captain, and was also President of St Albans & District Ladies Bowls Association twice. Although she no longer lives locally, the club was pleased to welcome Anne to the Dinner, and invited her to present her own award, on this occasion to Diane Jewell, the member with the highest average points gained during the season.
The Men’s Captain is responsible for selecting the winner of the ‘Jim Sales Salver’, which is awarded annually to the men’s ‘Player of the year’. Retiring Captain Steve Hipperson decided this year that the award should go to a member who had suffered a serious facial injury, in a bad fall leaving Harpenden Indoor Bowls Club in the winter. Even so, he recovered sufficiently to support Steve by being in the top 10 members putting their names forward for club matches during the summer. Members were delighted when he named Brian Bell as this year’s recipient.
After presenting trophies and memento’s to the 2019 competition winners, President Bill Burrows made special mention of, and presented gifts to, Jean Scott, Dee Lawrence & Mary Steed for organising the evening and Pam Barker for her support during his year of office. He thanked Terry Barker for acting as MC, and Competition secretary Colin Malone for organising the trophy presentations.
The President went on to congratulate the team captains, team members and individuals who had contributed to a most successful season. In addition, he thanked all those present for giving generously to his charity, ‘Essex & Herts Air Ambulance’.

On conclusion of the business part of the evening, the more able members danced the night away to the music of “Food of Love”.
