Many of you will be aware of the recent death of Elaine Clarke and our condolences go to Ken in his loss.
Elaine’s funeral has been arranged for Monday 14th September at Langstone Crematorium at 10.30 am and I would ask Club members and friends to join us at the entrance to the crematorium in order to pay our respects to Ken and his family.
In these difficult times there is no access to the car park at the crematorium but there is a lay-by opposite the entrance which can be used. Club members are asked to wear the club blazer and tie if possible and we should aim to get there by say 10.15 am to form a guard of honour.

So good to have a proper match at Caerleon yesterday and the small amount of rain did not spoil it. Belle Vue were good opponents and entered into the spirit of a friendly game played on a very good green. They took 2 rinks out of 3.
My big mistake was lending them two star players in the form of Avalon and Kath and that’s something I will not repeat in future friendlies!!
Talking of which, we have scheduled another friendly at 2.30pm on Saturday 19th September at Caerleon against Firbank bowling club. We need players for 3 rinks of 4 bowlers.
I’ll take names at Club Night on Thursday but please let me know ASAP if you are available. With the planned closure of the green proposed to be on 27th September, let’s make the most of the time left.
