Day trips

In 2017, there are to be two away days

Herne Bay

On Thursday 1st June, a coach with 40 members and guests set off at 9.30 am for Herne Bay. Once there, the group explored the town and had lunch before going to play or support 7 mixed triples in Herne Bay’s Memorial Park. For photographs , see the ‘News’ page.

Ramsgate

On Saturday 15th July, 30 bowlers and guests from Central Essex went to Thanet Bowling Club at Ramsgate. We left in a coach at 9.30, arriving in Broadstairs at 11.00. We had over 2 hours to enjoy a wander and have some lunch. After being made very welcome at the club, we played 6 triples with a very pleasing result 101-99. An excellent hot meal followed and we set off for home at 6.15, satisfied to have had a really good day out.
