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

Bar Bakes for Macmillan
The Bar/Macmillan Team.
Potters Bar Bowls Club is no different from any other bowls club – the average age of members is in the ‘senior citizen’ zone, and unfortunately this means that it has members with challenging medical conditions, some of whom have used, and others may in the future seek, Macmillan support.
It is for this reason that Bar members wanted to help the charity, and whilst the outdoor bowling season may have ended, it continued for Bar members, this time in the kitchen, rather than on the Green. The club held a Macmillan Coffee morning, with the members kindly baking and donating a selection of delicious cakes which were enjoyed by over 40 members.
Members kindly donated raffle prizes and played ‘Macmillan’ games to raise additional funds, with some sending ‘Apologies for absence’ cheques. The target was to raise £250, but Bar members played a winning game, and were delighted to learn that a magnificent sum of £401 had actually been raised for Macmillan.
