Just a summary of yesterdays events from my perspective.
After much hard work from a great team of volunteers, some strong support from the Parish Council and Honingham residents, Our Honingham Bowls Day attracted an impressive steady flow of visitors throughout the day. We had some very pleasing, genuine interest in a fresh approach to the use of the Bowls area.
Our contacts sheet is well populated and has given us some interested residents that we can include in the communication of all future events. It was very encouraging to hear that so many people were interested in just playing bowls. We also encouraged a few willing extra volunteers.
All of the activities were well attended and the sight of our Wonderful Bowling Green busy with people enjoying themselves was extremely pleasing.
The fund raising activities and some generous donations resulted in a grand total of £198.50.
We had prize winners for all three Target Bowls categories and yes, somebody did get the `Bowl in the Box’ Which meant that I had to honour my promise to dine in the Buck, in a very pretty dress!
I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all of the team that made this such a success and to every single person that visited us.
I was very pleased to see that the event at the Village Hall was equally well attended and it was great to see the village vibrant and `alive’.
Well done and thank you to all.
I propose to get together at the Bowls pavilion on Thursday 8th Sept at 7pm to discuss how best to move forward and to listen to any comments offered. All are welcome.
