The 2021 End of Season dinner took place on Saturday 16th October, at the Hermitage Park Hotel. The evening started with a delicious three course meal, served by three hard working hotel staff.

The meal was followed by the presentation of trophies to the prizewinners and runners up, and was followed by a long raffle, by way of the generosity of the club members in their donation of prizes. As with the bowls season, John Saunderson played a ‘blinder’ in the raffle! 


After the raffle, we were entertained to an extended ‘Where is Santa?’ draw, where it took five repeated efforts to track down exactly where ‘Santa was’, with the hamper prize going to Mick Hawkins. Thanks should go to Susan Gray, for organizing the ‘Where’s Santa’ draw, including the putting together of the ‘enticing hamper’, as well as the attractive favours that went on the table for every person who attended the meal.


Thanks, of course, to the social committee and Mick for organizing the event. The evening was a great success and most enjoyable, especially as none of us have ‘got out much’ in the last year!

Big Bowls Weekend

Ibstock Open Day Sunday 30th May

After weeks of wet and miserable weather, our Open Day dawned bright and beautiful – and more importantly warm! Our green was set up with a number of fun activities, all set at half the length of a rink so as to encourage newcomers to the sport – both adults and children.


For those who have bowled before or those newcomers who felt encouraged to graduate to a harder challenge, two full length rinks were set out.


Business was especially business during the morning and we were able to demonstrate that bowls is a sport for all ages. A number of individuals have expressed an interest to return to explore our sport further.


Many thanks to all who helped on the day, and to the Bowls Development Association, who provided a workshop ahead of the day, to open our minds to ‘fun events’ that can be used to encourage newcomers to the sport.


Further pictures of the event can be found in the Gallery section of this website or through the Ibstock Bowling Facebook page.
