BOWLS SEASON 2021 ROLLS OFF

Following the easing of covid related restrictions, the long awaited return to bowls will commence with our first game scheduled for Saturday 24th April. However, because of covid we are only able to play on alternative rinks at present, so it has been agreed to play rinks instead of triples on some games. This will allow for more players to participate due to a good response of members wishing to play.

For those selected to play, a couple of things to keep in mind. There will not be any form of refreshments or drinks avaliable, so please bring along your own. In the event of rain, if there is not enough outdoor cover, you must return to your car. On a lighter note, players will not be required to wear a face mask during game play.

Westfield Club Entertainment Events

It is with regret that due to the Covid-19 pandemic, at this point in time the club are cancelling all scheduled club entertainments events up to the 31st December 2020. Until such time as all forms of social distancing are totally relaxed and abandoned, it is felt unwise from a safety aspect to hold such events.  Obviously, should the situation change, it is hoped to hold a few events in the early part of 2021.

Club Social/Entertainments

With our summer season now sadly ended, our thoughts turn to what we are going to do over the coming winter months.  What I can tell you is that we have an exciting number of events lined up for your entertainment during those cold winter nights.

The first of these will be a fun Skittles Night taking place on Saturday 12th October at our club house with doors opening at 7pm. Just the thing to bring a smile to your face, have a good laugh, and if you’re lucky, maybe win a few pounds into the bargain
So if you haven’t got the date in your diary yet, write it in now! 

As in the past we're planning a buffet supper, fun raffle and door prizes.  So why not bring along your family, friends and even the grandkids on this occasion, all will be most welcome. 

Now could I ask all those planning in coming to let me know numbers, so we can get the catering just right?  Just a quick reply by email or telephone would be great. (01932-877615)

Finally, your support for all these social events is vital if we are to continue to have these fun evenings, so please make the effort to come along and enjoy yourself.  Plus it’s a good opportunity to catch up with friends, keep up to date with club news and overall, have a good night out.

Sunday 15th September saw the club play its last home game of the season against our friends, the Cricketers. Certainly an afternoon with a lot of laughs, fun and good banter all round plus some surprising hidden talent coming to the fore. With some mixed fortunes on both sides of the match, the Bowls got their revenge from last year when the cricketers beat them by winning this time around the overall game. Following the game, our sponsor by way of Paul Bye from Lodge Brothers, kindly did the honours of presenting the cup to Rob Todd - the Bowlers captain of the day.

With our mandatory group photo in the bag, a quick dash around to the cricket pitch for the long awaited super BBQ organized and put together by our Lesley Hodge and expertly cooked by some of the cricketers. I'm sure everybody will agree: a great afternoon, great company and great food made the day well worth repeating next year.

Not only an excellent social evening to meet friends, have a few drinks but the enjoyable challenge of playing competitive darts. If you would like to join the team, please give Mark Saunders a ring on 01483 574322 or 07807 336894.

Environmental Risk

Can we remind all members (including families & friends) not to discard food around the grounds as it attracts vermin which can cause an environmental risk.

Forthcoming Events

Sadly the summer season is once again coming to an end for both our bowling and cricket sections.  Soon be time to pack up our kit for another year, don our winter coats and dream of what next year will bring. 
BUT DON'T DESPARE!.........  Before we call it a day we have a couple of fun and exciting games lined up for your enjoyment.

Twilight Bowls Match
Firstly on Friday 6th September we have the fun Twilight Bowls Match, always a great evening where all our seasoned players, friends, family and kids enjoying a fun game in semi darkness.  The evening will be topped off with a Fish & Chip supper at the very reasonable price of £7.50 a head. 
Can I ask all those wanting to invite family and friends (all very welcome), to let us know numbers as we will need to pre-order in the food.  Order sheets are displayed on the two notice boards at the club.
Alternatively, you can drop us a quick line at zinccraft@aol.com or telephone 01932 877615 with your order.  Payment on the night.

Bowls v Cricketers Match
Saturday the 15th September sees our annual Bowls against Cricketers match.  Always a great fun afternoon where hidden talents are revealed, lots of good natured banter and lots of laughs along the way.  As in past years our sponsor – Paul Bye from Lodge Brothers will be presenting the cup to the final winning side and runner up medals to those coming a good second.  Following the presentation of winners etc, Lesley and company will be laying on a great BBQ at the very reasonable price of £5.00 per head (£2.00 per child).

As above, we will want to know numbers for catering purposes so please find time to either ring or email Lesley of your attendance.

End of Season putting the Green to Bed

Sad to say but our last bowls match at home is on Sunday 15th September, therefore it is the intention to start Tuesday 17th September preparing the green for seeding and spreading of top dressing (weather permitting) on Wednesday 18th September. Therefore as in past years your help will be needed in the removal of the matting from the ditch and the more heavy work of spreading the dressing etc. So please put theses dates in your diary to make sure you are available to come along and help.

The game against Wonersh this coming Wednesday (7th August) has been reduced to only 3 Triples due to insufficient players by Wonersh. Therefore, player/team selections have changed from the original line up. For revised line up click here.

Saturday 3rd August saw the annual challenge for the "Willy Groves Shield" competition take place. With twelve of our player members all lining up to battle it out, play rolled off at 10am sharp. With an eventful morning taken up with first round matches, play paused for a super lunch prepared by our Lesley Hodge. With play resuming after lunch, following some nail biting close matches, it came down to Charlie Cook against Jim Thelton in the final. In a very close game coming down to the very last end, Jim Thelton was the worthy overall winner. The afternoon was rounded off with Peter Smith, club captain presenting the shield to Jim.

A big thank you has to go to Ken Rapley for all his hard work in organising the day which was judged a great sucess by all concerned and our Wendy Todd for the afternoon tea of tasty cream scones.

Messages posted by Lesley Hodge -27th July 2019

Please note that Thursday Triples league match scheduled for 25th July against Woking Park has been deferred to a date in August due to extreme hot weather conditions.

Messages posted by Lesley Hodge -24th July 2019


With extreme hot weather conditions forecast for this week, all are advised to take extra care if you are playing outside, especially on Wednesday & Thursday when the temperatures are expected to rise to the high 30’s.

This is particularly important if you suffer from respiratory, heart, high blood pressure or breathing problems.  General advise is to make sure you drink plenty of cold drinks, wear a hat to keep the sun off your neck and, wrap a wet cold towel around your neck to help keep yourself cool.  Where possible, try and keep out of the sun in the shade.

For further advice, visit the NHS web site “Heatwave - Coping in Hot Weather

With the mad season now well behind us, we can look forward to bowling starting again outside.  However, with the snow and cold weather still very much with us, we can look forward to an exciting fun packed programme of lively social events in the coming weeks.

First up we have a trip down memory lane with a foot tapping evening of music from the 50’s & 60’s presented by the fabulous Phil Solo & Guest.
So dig out your dancing shoes and book your place on the floor for a great night of lively entertainment.  Date, just in case you forgot to put it in your diaries is Saturday 9th February, doors opening at 7.15pm.

As always, we do need your help in knowing who is coming and who is not, if for no other reason in getting the buffet just right.  So please, take a few minutes out and either drop us a quick line (zinccraft@aol.com) or a telephone call (01932 877615) as to whether you will be coming and what guest/friends will be joining us.
Obviously, all most welcome…. the more the merrier.
