Our 2022 tour will now be based at The TLH Carlton Hotel in Torquay. Due to the awful decision by Best Western Ipswich Hotel, Copdock, Ipswich to cancel our booking on 31st March this year frantic arrangements have had to be made to get us a tour (even if it is a little shorter than normal). The Ipswich hotel has taken a 12 month contract with the government to house refugees at a reported £150 per night per refugee. Thus making our club homeless for the week (and effectively we become refugees). MY ADVICE TO ANYONE READING THIS IS DO NOT BOOK WITH THE BEST WESTERN IPSWICH HOTEL
I’m considering putting a proposal forward to our next AGM to change our name to The West Sussex Refugees Bowls Touring Club.
As usual the club have a team in the Worthing Pavilion Friday 4’s league this winter.
