Welcome to Our Bowls Club which is in the centre of the Mendip village of Winscombe near Weston Super Mare in North Somerset. We are proud to have one of the best greens in Somerset.
Winscombe is a fully mixed club with teams playing in Somerset County and Local Leagues
as well as many Friendly and Tourist games.
4th June 1940 - 14th November 2020
Sadly our lovely June has passed away after a long illness.
She was the Ladies Competition Secretary for a number of years and had really embraced being a big part of our club.
She loved watching and playing bowls .
We shall miss her very much.
June's Family have set up a Tribute and Donations page which also gives details regarding her Funeral
which will take place at Sedgemoor Crematorium on Tuesday 1st December 2020 at 1.00pm.
Sadly because of the pandemic only invited guests will be able to attend.
Dedicated to the memory of June Rush.
Please note: If members would like to show their respect to June The Funeral cortege will pass the Club at 12 noon.
Please ensure you maintain your social distancing if you wish to stand at The Club.
Congratulations & Thanks
It's been a difficult year - An under statement!!
But Thanks to Careful Management by our President & Captain in particular
we have been able to enjoy playing our great game .
Our 'pop up' bar (Thanks Wilf) and
Fish n Chip suppers (Thanks Peta) have brought some normality back to Friday Evenings and will be missed!
Congratulations to The Winners of the various Competitions and also to you all who took part.
Let's hope our Centenary Year is back to normality!

Since the end of April, we have manufactured and delivered our kits, with relative normality.
Our production is currently unaffected by the latest lockdown rules and we plan to deliver Christmas orders as normal.
The last recommended ordering date for Christmas 2020 is Monday 16th November, although we plan to continue manufacturing orders placed after this date into the Christmas and New Year period.
We have again managed to support our Club Charity

We also had a number of spiders at our 'Covid Events' for alcoholic prizes kindly donated by Committee Members.
Well Done Everyone.
