In the evening of a glorious day of sunshine an official opening of the men’s green by Chairman Hugh McManus and Captain Gareth Williams – Gareth prepares to bowl his first ‘official’ bowl. Where did it finish!
Following the Welsh Government announcement on Friday , 19th June, Rhiwbina’s two bowling greens will open to members from Wednesday, 24th June. All members will receive information about restrictions to be applied and our online booking system in the next few days.
It seems as if we’ve had the driest May for some years! Preparations are continuing for a return to bowls, but a good overnight downpour would be a tonic for the green. Hoping to receive further information about relaxation of lockdown this week.
Well, after the recent good weather the green would have been ready! The rain has returned just in time for the planned opening day, but we hope to be able to get onto the green in some way later in the year. Keep safe everyone, and we’ll look forward to meeting up again.
