Other Clubs Celebrating Their Centenary Year
2021 is a special year at Lymington Bowling Club as the members will be celebrating 100 years since being founded in 1921. Celebrations are being organised and the hope is that the Pandemic does not put paid to these plans.
In recognition of other Bowling Clubs in the UK also reaching this milestone, a birthday card and a Lymington pennant was sent from the members to the following Clubs:
In response to our communication with these Clubs, so far two replies have been received:
‘Thank you for your card and banner together with your good wishes for our Centenary year which are very much appreciated. Our congratulations also go to your Club on reaching this milestone in your Club’s history and we hope you have a vey enjoyable and successful year. We, like you probably, are keeping our fingers crossed that the restrictions will be eased safely so that we can enjoy a reasonable league programme and enable us all to hold events to celebrate 100 years in style’. Camborne Bowling Club, Cornwall
‘Islip Bowls Club would like to thank you very much for sending us the card and pennant to help celebrate our 100th anniversary. We have been greatly affected by Covid as I’m sure you are, and all Bowling Clubs have been. 2021 was going to be a great celebration year for us but at the moment we are just trying to keep our head above water!! Your gift and message gave us a real boost! I’m sure we shall survive, and may we wish you many happy hours of bowling when we do get up and running again’. Islip Bowling Club, Northamptonshire.
