Great news for new members please
Caerleon Bowls Club was formed in 1951 and is based in the historic Roman Fortress Village of Caerleon, near Newport in South Wales.
The club run four mens teams with two Saturday teams competing in the Monmouthshire Bowls Association and Gwent Bowls respectively, as well as a Tuesday Over 60's league side and a Wednesday evening side that play in the Newport Bowls League.
We also have a thriving Ladies Bowls Club who also run a team from the same venue
We hold a club night on Thursday evenings during the season, where training is available from one of our four qualified coaches.
We are a friendly, social club who are always welcoming to new members or anyone who has just fancied having a go at this sport. Bowls is a great game for people of all ages and provides many health benefits to individuals.
Your Property is Our
First for Fiat in Monmouthshire
It would be wonderful to be able to send good news at this dark time..but I cannot, at least not as far as our Bowling Cub is concerned. The restrictions on movement and on the number of people who can gather together outside the home make it impossible at the moment to make any progress.
Our contract with Monmouthshire County Council to maintain the green is suspended because the work is not a priority. As and when there is some movement to open up some options we have agreed to renegotiate terms at that time. Similarly, if conditions permit us to do some work ourselves on the green and the surrounding hedges, we shall put the word out for some volunteers.
We know that there is zero chance of playing any form of league games this season but there may be a slim chance of sneaking a game or two in three or four months’ time but it would be a brave gambler to put any money on that!
For the time being therefore we must wait until the restrictions are eased in some way but, although we will not have so many outgoings as usual, it would be most helpful if we could collect a reduced membership fee to contribute to whatever outgoings we incur. It is suggested that we pay our usual £15 Club membership fee and if we can add a voluntary contribution of say, £10 each, making a total fee of £25, that would be most helpful. It will help reinforce the feeling of belonging to the Club and help ensure that the green and premises will be looked after to our best ability.
Please either send a cheque for the desired amount direct to Mike Jones or pay it can be made by BACS, direct to our bank account. For further details contact Mike direct
Please stay safe in the meantime and we look forward to when there is a more positive news at which time we shall be in touch again.
