This is why I thought to have it early miss the crowds, and I don't want to frighten the children.

Clockhouse League.

Presumably the lady members will also have to do the run, presumably in Lycra shorts? If it wasn't so early, a big crowd might be expected!

This year i am determined Haynes Park will win the Clockhouse League This will entail a strict training regime , all players on match day must turn up at 7 am at the clubhouse in Lycra shorts and tops and run 3 miles around the park stopping halfway to do 50 press-ups if anyone survives they MUST then buy the afternoon Captain and my co selector a pint before the match.anyone not complying with this will do the washing up after the match.

Ron Day TKR

Many thanks to everyone who enguired about my second knee replacement. Everything seems to be on track and hope to have stitches removed this Thursday. Finding it easier to cope this time round due to previous experience. In addition I have a very caring nurse, what would I do without her?

Ron Day, Feb. 13, 2017, 7:50 p.m.

Pre-Xmas Weds. Get together.

Many thanks to Colin for arranging today's get together, also for the mince pies, biscuits, tea etc. Over 20 people attended, there was a lot of chat and laughter, particularly when the party poppers were fired. It doesn't take a lot to make people happy!. photos are in pictures under Colins wednesday afternoon.

Captain V R M Captain

Had a brilliant afternoon for Captain V R M Captain match with the retired members winning .Win or lose it is always a very pleasant afternoon with bragging rights as the prize. Thanks to all who took part and made it such a enjoyable day.

Charlie, Sept. 21, 2016, 6:28 p.m.

Charity Day

As you all can see, the Charity Day in aid of St.Francis Hospice was a great success and enjoyed by all those taking part who dug deep to raise the £450. Such a shame not all our members could attend as these "Get-together" Events are a good way to meet and make friends with the bowlers who are unable to get along for the Club afternoons. Sure Pat would be delighted to receive a donation from anyone who wasn't able to attend in person, it is a Charity very dear to the hearts of many of our members who have been glad of the St.Francis services. Pat did a great job organising everything.

Joyce , Sept. 17, 2016, 10:27 a.m.


The charity day went extremely well, five rinks were used with £450 being raised for St Francis hospice. Well done captain Pat and Len for organising the day and to all the cake makers and people who donated raffle prizes the tea makers and the washeruppers. All in all a very successful day.

The funeral of Owen Martin was held on Tuesday 12th Feb. The chapel at Corbets Tey was packed with family and friends saying goodbye. Owen who had been at Haynes Park many years had served in most of the positions in the club including President, after he stopped playing he still came and supported the club he will be sadly missed. Deepest sympathy to Christine and her family.
