I have picked up from the local paper this week notice the passing away of former member Ray Fieldgate who played for East Preston BC. Ray was a member of the tourists from 2000 until 2007 touring with us on 6 occasions. His funeral (under the usual covid restrictions) will take place on 7th December at Worthing Crematorium.

Your committee have reluctantly (due to Covid) decided to cancel all our indoor fixtures for this coming winter.

Yes we’ve made it. After 65 years we have made the Inside Bowls magazine. This magazine features bowling articles from all over the world. We are featured on pages 36/37/38 and 41.
