           AGM January 14th 2019, 7:30pm at The Duke of York.










We are sorry to announce the sad news that

Peter Nichols has passed away.

Peter was a member of our club for many

years and was a past President.

He has supported bowling over the years and

was President of the Oakhill Jubilee League.


The funeral was at St John the Baptist

church, Barlaston on Tuesday 11th September.

Peter was buried at Barlaston cemetery.


















The Club enters its 92nd recorded year with encouragement from its continuing successes last season, this success reflects the tradition of Crown Green bowling in our Club and village.  Folk of all ages and both sexes are afforded the opportunity to engage in a sport and social activity for most of their lives.  The Club has always provided for both first class competitive bowling in several leagues and also for social bowling, over the years alongside senior and junior County representatives, as many members have just enjoyed playing with friends socially.  A truly family sport and  a Club where grandparents, parents, husbands and wives, brothers, sisters and offspring and friends all continue to play together.  Ironic that it was not until 1941 that ladies were first invited to become members of our Club that last season both  teams did really well. Our ladies have always been stalwart supporters and captains and we feature two teams in the Ladies League.

We welcome back Paul Philpott as our President this year who is supported by his wife Elaine who is now the club chairman.

 Social and beginners bowling continues on Friday afternoons and the Clubs policy of reduced fees for both non members and social bowlers has proved successful.

 Besides all this the Club, who were playing when the Plume of Feathers was still a Coach House on a different site, welcomes the current refurbishment and development and wishes the new landlords every success.

 New members either experienced or novice bowlers are most welcome to join and spectators can enjoy sitting and watching matches perhaps supping a tincture, an ancient tradition the Club continues to provide in Barlaston.  During the season we run two teams in several leagues which means generally three evening matches and three afternoon matches are on view each week.  Enquiries can be made to Club Secretary Ron Kelsall on 01782 644227 or email to pofbowls@talktalk.net
