Welcome

HERNE BAY WEATHER

Herne Bay Bowling Club is situated in the town's Memorial Park and is approximately 400 yards from the railway station and 500 yards from the sea front. The club was founded in 1926 and hosts several Open Tournaments throughout the season. During the close season, short mat bowls is played in the clubhouse.

Visitors to the club will find that the town of Herne Bay has much to offer to enhance their visit. The sea front has undergone a 3 million pound facelift, which has restored many of the original Victorian features. This together with additional facilities has made Herne Bay very popular with both day-trippers and longer-term visitors.

Short Mat Section

We run a Short Mat Section during the winter months and are affiliated to the Kent Short Mat Bowling Association and members of the East Kent Short Mat Bowling Association.

Glorious Failure

The worst thing about writing "The Bugle" is that whenever, unless we achieve the ultimate, it must conclude with failure. The good bit about the 2018 Bugle is that it ends with "Glorious Failure". Our remaining rinks: - Bill Gibbon, Tony Knibbs, Gordon Kent and Bob Day together with Ritchie Callanan, Roy Chillingworth, Ray Chipperfield and Alf Collar eventually had to succumb to a very strong Canterbury side in the Area Semi-Final of the Cox Cup. Gents, the hats of all Herne Bay members go off to you in what must be classed as a magnificent run in the competition beating other clubs, some of whom only entered one side in the competition. I also include Paul Evans and Peter Gibson who both played in earlier rounds.

Strange Twist of Fate

First an apology for the lack of bugle last week. Having arrived late back from Lenham and off early the following morning to Gravesend and then immediately off to Faversham for a FOB game it completely went out of my mind. Or in other words I lost the mouthpiece, so I couldn't blow the thing or get a note out of it. Suffice to say two of our sides suffered defeats to Lenham and Lyminge whilst our other team consisting of Bill Gibbon, Peter Gibson (in for the unavailable Tony Knibbs), Gordon Kent and Bob Day, and Ritchie Callanan, Roy Chillingworth, Ray Chipperfield (in for the unavailable Paul Evans), and Alf Collar completed a fine win over a very strong Ashford Rail side.
