The new outdoor season is almost upon us. The green will be officially opened by our President, David Matthews, on Sunday, 21st April, giving us a week to hone our skills before our first match on Sunday, 28th April. The match will be preceded at 1pm by our MP, Anne Milton, opening our 90th season. Do come along and support your club.
Club nights start on Tuesday, 23rd April, so why not come along, have a roll-up, and meet up with old friends.
On Saturday, 13th April, we held our first jumble sale of 2019.
We were lucky with the weather, cold but sunny, which helped to bring the buyers.
Friday evening had been a very busy time, setting up tables and putting out the jumble ready for the early Saturday start. I’m particularly grateful to all the club members who turned up at 10:30pm to get us set up.
On Saturday, dealers were our first visitors at 8:30. They pay a premium for early entry, which helps boost our takings. At last 10:00 arrived and we were able to let the public in. It was good to see some familiar faces and there is always the opportunity for some freindly banter. Sales were brisk and, as expected, some great bargains were there for the taking. A first for this year was the cake stall, where all but two fairy cakes went to an appreciative home.
Eventually, time was up and we set to work clearing the hall. It’s always surprising to see items that one expects to sell still on the tables.
Once again, a big thank you to everyone who helped make the sale a success. We couldn’t have done it without you.
Our next jumble sale is on 26th October.
Yes, it’s our first jumble sale of 2019!
Why not come along to Merrow Village Hall at 10am on Saturday, 13th April and bag some bargains. We’ll have textiles, books, toys, and bric-a-brac stalls to temp you.
A new feature for this year is a cake stall. Indulge your taste buds and support the bowls club at the same time.
Doors open at 10am with an entry fee of just 50p. If you want first choice, you can pay £5 for entry at 8:30am.
