Welcome to Torquay Bowling Club

We are Up and Running in 2022

Our thanks go to Susie Colley for taking on the traditional and daunting task of putting down the the first bowl of the season on Opening Day. She did it in style and drew a round of applause from the watching experts for putting not one but two bowls close to the jack, setting the standard for the rest of the afternoon. Fifty plus members enjoyed an afternoon game and discovered a few forgotten muscles in the process. All in all a most enjoyable start to the season.

 

A Defibrillator and Two New Life Members

A defibrillator is one of those things you never want to need but will be ever grateful that it was there when you needed one. The Club Committee have been raising money so that we could have one one site. When Susie Colley of West Country Healthcare, one of our most generous Friends, heard of this she very kindly offered to buy one. The offer was gratefully accepted and has now been handed over to us. To coincide with the presentation it was decided to make Susie an Honorary Life Member of the Club. And knowing that two for one is a good offer June Skennerton, our long serving Secretary, was also presented with Life Membership. The photos below show the presentation and June presenting Susie with thankyou flowers.
