Welcome to Hampden Park Art Group

The inaugural meeting launched with five participants and the room/table will accommodate another 6 or 7 people so if you fancy a dabble give Naomi our centre manager a call 01323 506009 and she will pass your details on to the group.

 

Christmas Fayre Held at Club Saturday 27th November 2021

What a successful event – we have raised over £1000 for club funds.

A big thank you to everyone who gave generously to this event in so many different ways.

Huge thanks also to those who helped set up and man the various stalls, and also to all those people who came along and gave their support.

Grateful thanks too, to Michelle, Kim, Charlie and the bar staff who worked so hard keeping everyone fed and watered.

Without all of these people we could not have held this successful event.

What’s on in December

Some great things happening in December.

We start with the ever popular Christmas Quiz once again hosted by Quiz Master Steve, Friday 3rd December, 7pm for 7:30pm start.

A mixed drive fund raiser is being held on Sunday 5th December 1.30pm to start at 2pm raising much needed funds for local charity Children With Cancer Fund – Polegate.

Children With Cancer Fund Mixed Drive Fund Raiser

We are going to hold a mixed drive on Sunday 5th December 1.30 onwards to raise money for the children with cancer fund.

For those of you that do not know what a mixed drive is… It is a fun afternoon for all abilities playing in teams of 4. There are 3 games of 6 ends each. The afternoon is a great way to meet new people and have some fun playing bowls. You can join up individually as teams are drawn.

There will be prizes!

For the entry fee we are asking for a donation (minimum £3) with all the monies going to the Children with Cancer fund.

To make it a bit of fun, come along in your Christmas attire!

If you would like to join in and raise some much-needed funds for this great cause please add your name to the list on the notice board or ring the club and ask to be included (48 players required)

 

Thank You

Dear Members,

I would like to thank everyone who has bought the second hand bowls, equipment and clothes over the last few months. We have raised £1,000 for the juniors, Dave Buttle has now ordered 3 more sets of bowls for them to use on a Friday 4-6pm Juniors session.

A Big Thank You

The work carried out was in addition to the hard work our current volunteer cleaners’ carry out every week.

Also, thank you to the reserves, you’re on the list for next time!

What a successful day.

Winter Season COVID Safe Bowling

Our winter season starts next week and already the club has a buzz about it.
It’s exciting to look forward to our programme of friendly roll ups, matches and competitions available to us, along with a selection of upcoming social events. However, as we head towards winter, I can’t help but be mindful of how we can keep us all safe from colds, flu and Covid. 

We, as a club, have been very successful in the last 18 months in keeping the club as sanitised as possible and we will continue to do so as a part of our commitment to you.

It’s now that I ask you to continue to:

All members/visitors who have not pre-booked bowling or bar/restaurant must sign in at the Green Stewards desk for test and trace purposes. 

Hand sanitise on entry and wherever you see the sign asking you too.

Keep use of the toilets to a maximum of 2.

Sanitise jacks, mats (at both ends) and scorers after you finish your session.

Start play from far end for rinks 1, 3 and 5 to even out rink use.

Refrain from hand shaking and hugging – bring back the knuckles and elbows!

Please wear masks in busy areas, our staff will be wearing masks when appropriate to protect you so please think of them.

It’s great to feel ‘normal again’ but let’s be careful too.

Thank you for your support.

Liz Parks

Health and Safety Director.
