Barwell Cricket & Sports Club Company Ltd is celebrating 100 years of providing sports facilities at the Kirkby Road complex. Articles have been published in both The Hinckley Times and The Local Rock to document this achievement.
Are you interested in joining an indoor bowling club? Then why not come and try our taster sessions on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd September from 10am - 12noon and 2pm - 4pm.
We are very pleased to say, after holding a number of fundraising events at the club and also receiving both a private donation and a grant from the EIBA Charitable Trust, we now have two brand new bowling wheelchairs at the club. It has been an ambitious fundraising project to take on this year and we would like to take this opportunity to thank our members and everyone who has contributed to the events we have held for their support. Our club aims to be inclusive and we are keen to provide opportunities for disabled people to participate in bowling. As such, the ability to provide appropriate equipment for all our members is extremely important to us.
Just to let our members know, we have had new scoreboards installed on the bowling green at the club. We hope you will agree that this makes a great improvement.
We would like to extend our thanks to Remap for making repairs and adding a bowls carrier to one of our old bowling wheelchairs so that we are able to put it back into use while we continue to fundraise for our new chairs.
Remap is a charity who custom makes equipment to help disabled people live more independent lives. The work they do is extremely valuable to the recipients they help.
Remap as a charity relies on support and donations from the public to provide this service. For further information please visit their website www.remap.org.uk
This fundraising event was held on Thursday 18th April and was successful in raising £300 which will go into our new wheelchair fund.
It was a nice evening including the fashion show, a mini afternoon tea and a raffle.
Thank you to everyone who supported us both in attending and donating prizes.
On Saturday 6th April we held our annual Harvey Trophy day in memory of Bernard and Lettie Harvey.
It was a lovely day enjoyed by both players and supporters. A big thank you goes to Carole Charlesworth for organising it.
Congratulations to the winners Pat and Kelvin Watts (pictured being presented with the trophy by our president Carole Ison). A big well done also goes to runners-up Val Hay and Clive Parish.
We are pleased to announce that B.I.B.C. is now a member of Disability Bowls England.
We are keen to promote inclusivity at our club and encourage players with physical, sensory or intellectual disabilities to participate in bowls and get involved in the many matches and competitions on offer.
We look forward to welcoming DBE to the club in winter season 2019/20 when we have fixtures arranged with them.
We held a fundraiser at the club on Friday 15th March which included a cake stall, a raffle and 'guess the weight of the cake' and 'guess how many sweets in the jar' games. We managed to raise a fantastic £423 which will go towards our current fundraising project which is to purchase new wheelchairs to be used on the green at the club.
A massive thank you to everyone who contributed/supported us. It was a lovely day and a positive one for our club.
It is safe to say a fun afternoon was had by all who attended this year's presidents day! With optional pyjama fancy dress and a snakes and ladders themed match things got quite competitive and lots of laughs were had. Well done to Carole for organising the game.
As a club, we would like to take this opportunity to thank this year's president Carole Ison. During her time in office, she has shown great commitment to the club and its members. We are extremely grateful for all her hard work and dedication to the role.
