Wealden Bowls Centre (www.bowlswealden.co.uk) bowled-off the new season with two events. On Saturday 22nd September the Open Day found lots of new members discovering the intricacies and challenges of bowls. Sunday the 25th september saw the president's Charity Shield Tournament, an all day mixed tournament enjoyed by 96 members in 24 teams. A great fun day, played in a friendly spirit with all the usual banter to make many smiling faces. Just over £1,000 was raised as a starter for this year's Charity, The Chestnut Tree House Children's Hospice. Another success was SLM Toyota donating £50.00 to the bowls club as another happy member purchased a car from the SLM Toyota in Uckfield.
