25 Year Anniversary Of Burford Town Bowls Club New ClubHouse

 

 

A letter from Mrs Christine Agg.

I was really impressed to see the newly decorated club house at the open evening Saturday 24th February 2018 , Cyril Agg my husband would have been equally pleased as it was just what he had planned to do at the time but the funds had ran out.

Back then when the new club house was open we had many happy times keeping the club going, there would be Race Nights, Fancy Dress and Parties, long may the fun of fund raising continue.

Recalling all this now has made me realise just how hard Cyril my husband and a few other had worked for the club, it is a tribute to them and it makes me feel very proud of them.

Cyril joined the bowls club around 1984/5, Worth Webb had introduced Cyril to bowling and showed him how to play, he really enjoyed it and was not long before he got hooked. I would help out at functions, and we all had some lovely times, but the old club house was now getting dilapidated, it was in need of a lot of work and the floor was almost ready to give way.

Cyril introduced Bill Preedy  to bowls, and he too was soon hooked. Both Cyril and Bill thought that instead of repairing the old dilapidated club house why not build a new one?. “You will never do it” they heard, fund raising plans were put in to action. And as they say the rest is history.

 

Here is a list of peoples names who contributed towards the building of the new clubhouse
