Memory Lane Eastbourne
Social Activities for People with Dementia & their Carers
We recently welcomed Members and their Carers from ‘Memory Lane’ to have their first try at bowls. We started the session by having a go at delivering the bowls, followed by scoring points using the floor target and ‘goal’. A cuppa and cake finished off a fun afternoon and we look forward to their next visit. Visits are planned for the 4th Friday in the month.

2019 is the 40th anniversary of our club opening and whilst working on our new website we found some old newspaper cuttings and memorabilia and thought it would be a nice idea to invite all our founder members, life members and those who had joined the club in that first year to a coffee morning to talk about their memories. Some members brought in their own photos and cuttings and having displayed everything on tables in our restaurant it proved an interesting morning with current members having a look and asking questions during their “Roll-up” tea break.
Eastbourne and District Indoor Bowls Club has undergone several improvements over the past couple of years that has seen the club membership grow significantly.
During the summer, the club website has been fully redesigned and modernised to better reflect our club status as one of the leading indoor bowls clubs in the South East of England. Our new web pages will allow everyone to see inside our wonderful bowls club.
May I take this opportunity to welcome each and every member in to the club and wish you all a pleasurable and successful year.
