had a wonderful bowls tour arranged again by Ray and Eileen Newman from 20th
to 23rd May this year. We returned to stay at the Langham Hotel which
is a favourite with our members, especially for the excellent food and
had three days bowling with the Sunday a free day. We travelled down by coach
on the Friday and after a picnic on arrival played at Hampden Bowls Club in the
afternoon. Then on Saturday afternoon we played at Gildredge Bowls Club. On the
Sunday many of us went by coach to explore Brighton, the Lanes and Brighton Pavilion.
We also enjoyed some of the Brighton Fringe events taking place throughout the
town. On our last day we played at Eastbourne Bowls Club. The game was followed
by a fish and chip supper at the club before we returned home.
were made very welcome by all the bowls clubs in Eastbourne, and we are
especially grateful to Eileen and Ray again for their excellent organization
which made it such a successful and enjoyable tour for our members.
