Cheshire View Bowling Trip 2015
The annual trip to the Nags Head in 2014 was marred by the poor quality of the bowling green but a quick switch to nearby Cheshire View proved a success. So in 2015 we all once again made the trip to Cheshire View for our round robin pair’s competition.
Remarkably the weather was once again hot and sunny which together with the venue and food resulted in a very enjoyable day for all the 31 people on the outing. The food throughout the day was extremely good with a buffet breakfast and lunch at Cheshire View. On a hot day home- made soup and sandwiches were presented for lunch. Soup was unusual on a hot day but the quality was so good it soon disappeared.
The bar was well supported throughout our stay. After the bowling we had the usual stroll through the picturesque Christleton village to the Plough Inn for our evening meal where once again the food was plentiful and very tasty.
The joint winners of the competition this year were Peter Ellis and Val Wilson together with Chris Bray and Simon Raynor. Well bowled to them.
Thanks to everyone who supported the trip and it will be take place again in July 2016 which will be the ninth consecutive year.
The Nags Head Trip 2014 (well not the Nags Head)
(See photos on the Photo Gallery)
John Ineson again arranged our usual trip to the Nags Head on Friday 11 July 2014.
He also ordered the weather which was glorious.
When we got there and unloaded the coach with all our bowling tackle, setup around the green, and what a surprise or shock we had. The green mower had broken down some ten weeks ago and not been repaired, so they had cut the green with a domestic mower and it looked like my back garden. The grass was about two inches long!! They did not have the courtesy to inform John.
The new owners did not seem bothered about it, so John and Richard (our Coach Driver) got on their mobiles and contacted another club nearby, the Cheshire Views (John’s second choice for the trip) to see if they could accommodate us at late notice. After our breakfast we set off again to our new location and what a location it was. You will see from the pictures taken how good. Hope we go there next year. Greens were cut down that morning and in very good condition.
A very good day was had by all 28 bowlers and some excellent bowling, spectators enjoyed the day too.
The bowlers were drawn into two sections in pairs, all bowling each other in a round robin of five ends. The winners and runners up of each sections were then drawn to play 11 up.
Janice Walton & Liz Ellis beat Andy Page & Don Ingle.
Val Wilson & Pete Ellis beat Anne Watkinson & Dave Marshall.
Val Wilson & Pete Ellis beat Janice Walton & Liz Ellis.
We finished the day off by walking the half mile down to the local pub for our evening meal before heading home on the bus with a singalong for those who stayed awake.
Nags Head trip 2013
Organised by John Ineson another good event, with 38 members taking part in the day we all had a good time. This year John even managed to order the weather. In cracking sunshine there was bowling from 1030 after breakfast till 1900 before dinner.
The drawn pairs winners were Jack Bentley & Chris Bray (Section 1) and Eddie Watkinson & Malcolm Middleton (Section 2). Well done to them all. We even managed to get Matthew Stephenson bowling!
The ladies who did not bowl topped up their tan in between some liquid refreshments.

CSC to hold 2014 All England Finals
As is the case every year, the venue for the British Crown Green Bowling Association Senior Merit Finals is hosted by a club within the county of the BCGBA President for that particular year and so in 2014, with the honour of being the British President falling to Yorkshire's own Chris Hasselby, so has, for one lucky club, the honour of hosting the 2014 All England Finals.
A number of clubs were interested including Cleckheaton Sports Club and so on 27 January, a number of officials from the Yorkshire Crown Green Bowling Association, who were tasked with appointing the lucky club arrived at Moorend to hear our pitch!
A well thought out presentation had been developed by the Club's Mark Waite and Matthew Stephenson in association of course with the Bowls section and Matthew gave this presentation to the esteemed officials in the company of Club Chairman, John Barraclough and Bowls officials, Chairman, Richard Bentley, Secretary, Janice Walton, Vice Chairman, John Ineson, Traeaurer Peter Corboz and Vets Secretary Alan Potter.
The presentation seemed to go down well and there were a number of rather taxing questions. The YCGBA bigwigs then huddled in a corner to discuss the merits of the presentation, the answers to the questions and the facilities on offer.
The next two weeks were somewhat tense as we waited to hear and then on Saturday 9 Feb, after the YCGBA finally made their decision: the All England is coming to Cleck!
And so the hard work begins!!
