Whit Hern Club Tour to Eastbourne 2016
We 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 accommodation.
We 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.
We 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.
