Brian West is presented with his award for being a member of Castle Green Bolwing Club for 30 years.

The surprise on his face was amazing when the president of Surrey Bowling Club, Derek Harvey,  presented Brian with his certificate and flashers for his blazer.

The Mayor of Guildford, Nigel Manning and the Mayoress, Marsha Moseley, were present and presented winning medals that were won by the “Westies”.

Merrow Village Bowls Club

By David Raison

On Saturday, May 27, Merrow welcomed Burpham to their green. Four rinks of triples were played in mostly sunny conditions.

There was a keen sense of anticipation on the part of Merrow, who were looking forward to a competitive fixture. The result saw Merrow win on all four rinks, beating Burpham by a grand total of 26 points, a result that far outweighed our expectations.

Teas were provided by Joan Mead, with everyone commenting on her tasty home-made cake, which was enjoyed sitting in the sunshine.

Merrow’s next fixture with Burpham is on August 26 at their ground, when we hope for another successful day.

Merrow Bowls Club is holding a free open day on Sunday, July 2.

The club is holding an open day on Sunday, July 2, from 2pm to 4pm. Its green is behind Merrow Village Hall, 177 Epsom Road, Guildford GU1 2QY.

Come along and see for yourself how much fun you can have while enjoying the open air. Just bring some flat shoes or trainers and we’ll provide bowls and coaching. A bar and refreshments will be available on the day.

We have club nights on Tuesday and Thursday when you will always be welcome.

We are part of Merrow Village Club and membership includes access to all the club facilities.
