Reports Hitchin and Biggleswade


It was Still very hot against Hitchin so we played 12 ends. After 6 ends we were leading by 5 shots and with the final end to go i made it we were up 1 shot. However getting the final result was disappointing as we lost 42-30 (Think my maths must have gone wrong or we had some disastrous last ends. At Biggleswade the weather had subsided and it was a nice day to play bowls, After 9 ends i think we were down by about 5 shots but finished up by losing 73-47  (from Memory). However afterwards we were treated to a superb meal and great hospitality (and i won first prize in the raffle) so an enjoyable day for which Biggleswade should be congratulated.


Reports Willian and Steeple Morden

First Willian , On the hottest day of the year so far it was decided that we would only play 12 ends. At the halfway stage we were losing by 11 shots, I'm afraid there was no comeback this time so home advantage (?) didn't help as we ended up losing 42-30.


Now Steeple Morden . On the windiest day of the outside season , again we were losing at the halfway stage (well Actually 12 ends). We were then treated to a lovely salad and cakes but again we couldn't comeback and lost 75-63. 


Gala Day 2018

Well This years Gala Day arrived and as Mike said at the AGM, it was guaranteed to be a sunny day after Dorothy brought the umbrellas ! and so it proved to be. On a baking hot day 24 teams took part. Some old friends turned up in the form of Joan Rudge, Eileen Smith and Rose Saunders. Also several other past bowlers from other clubs turned up. It was a pleasure to see them.


The spider was great fun and we managed to raise 78 for the Samaritans so thanks to all who took part.


The day itself Raised 787.90 so again a big thanks to all for your contributions, Also a Very big pat on the back to Dorothy and all the others who managed to make it a success.


The winners were Avril Straw along with Sue and Colin Cole, Congratulations to them.

No Wembley this year


On a glorious evening for bowls we were playing in the Cairns Cup against a strong Royston side. Two rinks at home and two away With the aggregate score of all four games counting. NHBC home team had a slender lead at the end of the evening and Mike Jeffreys was getting worried of losing his 100% record , as evidently we have never won a game in this.  However when the Carrier pigeon arrived it appears that Royston had won the home game by a bigger margin, so Mike's record was safe.


Afterwards we were treated to a lovely meal for which the ladies should be congratulated. Also special thanks To Mike and Tricia who left there holiday resort at 0700 to ensure everything was ready for the evening.


Report Langford Away


Well what a game this was. After about 4-5 ends we were losing 13-0,9-0,9-2 and winning 7-5 on the last rink Only what i can remember so may not be strictly accurate. So 27 shots down. I'm not sure if the sun came out or went in but somehow we turned it round and finished up winning the match 77-73 so what a comeback. Langford laid on an impressive spread afterwards and should be thanked for there hospitality.



Hospice evening.

Well despite a greyish start we ended up having some lovely weather for the evening. A big thanks to Basil for organising. The raffle became the Malcolm and Ted road show with them both winning 3 or 4 times. However the winner was the hospice as we raised 110. Thanks for all the food, raffle prizes and your support.
