Our new gates are one of the
first things you see on arrival at
the entrance to the Green.
Then there is the new Welcome
Board which will advertise names
of the visiting bowls clubs.
The Welcome Board was kindly donated by our 2018 President

A new member in memory of a club stalwart.
Brian Hamshere often spoke of his ambition to create a "bowls man", but sadly was unable fulfil his ambition, so Terry White did it for him and called him "Brian".

New for Old
It was felt that following the donation of the new Welcome Board, the entrance could be further enhanced by replacing the old wrought iron gates. Resident carpenter Terry White and his trusty stead, Barry Bowman sourced the materials and Terry went to work, producing what can only be seen as a big improvement and a much more welcoming entrance to the Club.
This is also an important year for Terry Barker as he will be welcoming many County guests, so first impressions count!

BUSY POTTERS BAR BOWLS CLUB MEMBERS
The brand new gates at Potters Bar Bowls Club are still closed to members but the Green Team and Maintenance Team, observing the government’s guidelines, are working hard as always to maintain the bowling green and keeping the surroundings in good order.
However Members have not been idle. Following the Virtual Opening Day, supported by over 50 members and the virtual celebrations of VE Day, when Members were invited to send appropriate celebratory photos for the Club web site, marking the day, 10 Members, one of whom, Eric Mariner, will be 90 in July, helped to promote the newly launched Potters Bar Radio Station. Mary Holt asked if some members could deliver over 1000 flyers to various roads in Potters Bar. The 10 volunteer members rose to the Project Postcard challenge, the flyers were delivered within 24 hours and a warm vote of thanks was received on last Sunday evening’s radio show.
Also a disabled Associate Member is undertaking a sponsored cycle ride, aiming to cycle 30 miles in five days, on behalf of this year’s President’s Charity, Fight Bladder Cancer.
Members are missing playing bowls but the main purpose of the Management Committee at this time is to ensure the safety and good health of its Members. The Management Committee will meet in due course to make a decision on opening the Club and letting the Members know when bowling is likely to resume. Watch this space!
