Howie President 2020 Billy Herd

Our President, Billy Herd, is  (hopefully)  at the final stages  of his shielding.  He has set up a blog on Facebook and goes live every weekday  evening at 8:00 p.m. So, search for Billy on Facebook and then like his OOR Billy’s Blog.  You can even send him a  message to let him know he is not truly alone!

It was a sad day for the club yesterday as Helen Kyle, ex President and Secretary, said goodbye to her friends at the club, as she left to start a new life in Aberdeenshire. Helen galvanised the club and was responsible for the Active Schools programme which saw hundreds of children introduced to bowling.  Have a great life up north, Helen!

Following a meeting of the Management Committee on 9th June , the club is now open for business! The club opened on Monday 15th June on a three week  trial basis. The clubhouse remains shut, and members wishing to play must attend an induction session at the club on the new procedures, and pre-book a playing time before they will be allowed on the green.  If you  are a member and wish to play, email us at prestwickhowiebowlingclub@gmail.com.

The Ayrshire Post has run a full page feature this week (24th June) of the club’s delayed opening.
