Fant Abba Ulous Night
Wednesday 21st June 2017 4:12 pm
A fant abba ulous night was had by all dancing and singing along to the sound of Absolute Abba, you could say it was hot, hot, hot. Tony and Roy with fevered and perspiring brows waited continuously throughout the night along with the bar staff of Sue and Paul also working non stop to keep the crowd lubricated. Sue could be seen bopping whilst serving which gives an indication of the infectiousness of the night. As mentioned before it was a hot sticky night but the energy was found by the crowd both during the show and in the interval to get up and strut their stuff. The night was rounded off by everybody singing Thank You For The Music. Food was arranged, prepared and served by the hard working social section of Mo, Sandra, Lillian and Gill. We would like to thank all who attended for making the evening a huge success.

Opening Day Drive
Thursday 10th April 2014 10:59 am
A message from your Captains regarding the Opening Day Drive on Saturday 19th April 2014. Please note that as getting everyone registered and into teams takes time we would suggest that all that wish to play are present by 2pm. The last registration time that will guarantee you can play will be 2.10pm by the clock at the bar. Anyone arriving after this time will only be allowed to play (at the Captain's discretion) if it does not interfere with the construction of teams. As an example if 72 players have registered at 2.10pm making 18 Fours there is no way that anyone else will be considered.
Can you also ensure that you report directly to the Captain's on arrival at the club.

Herne Bay Bowls Club held their annual Charity Day on Saturday at which a cheque for Â£3,800 was presented to Chrissie Keeley, representing the Charity Kent Association for The Blind.

With on line donations and gift aid added, the total KAB will receive is Â£4,765. Bill had decided to run the marathon on behalf of KAB as his granddaughter Hallie 2 and a half was born blind. Hallie and her family have received tremendous support from the Charity. Ms. Keeley thanked members of the club for the efforts they had made and said it was a fantastic amount raised for the Charity.
