PHIL'S UP FOR THE CUP                                                                                

Congratulations to Phil Gladden who won the Longford Cup on Sunday 5 August at 

Chipping Norton.

Phil beat Brian Smith of Witney Town 21-7 in the semi final and then saw off Nigel Galletly of

Banbury Central in the final winning 21-16. 

The Longford is one of Oxfordshire's most prestigious singles trophies.

Thanks to Maureen Tyrrell for the picture.



Adderbury won the Oxford and District Bowls League Division Three by 18 points and without losing a match.

It was an outstanding season and congratulations go the the squad, pictured below.




















You could win a wheelbarrow full of beer for £1 in the club's summer raffle.

Tickets are on sale now at the clubhouse and can be bought until final's day on Sunday 26 August when the draw will be made.

Don't worry about spilling the prize on the way home - the ale will be in bottles, cans etc.

The raffle is organised by Lucy Wells and comes after her successful 'win a barrow of wine' raffle last Christmas.

Why not buy a ticket every time you go to the club and increase your chances of winning.



The club played host to the 10th Macmillan Mammoth Quiz on Friday 23rd February.

The Macmillan charity supports people and the families of people who suffer from cancer and for the past decade the fundraising marathon has been organised at hundreds of venues around the country at the same time on the same night. 

It holds the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest simultaneous quiz.

This year the bowls club hosted a local event and the evening was tremendous success.

Some people were turned away as the clubhouse was full to the brim.

Twelve teams took part and the quiz was decided by a tie break question with the winners being a village team called the Rawlings Stones. 

The total raised on the night for Macmillan was £507.

The next Macmillan Mammoth Quiz will take place on Friday 22 February 2019.

In addition to the fundraising, the club recruited several new social members and a couple of people expressed an interest in attending our open day in April.



Guests are admitted to the club only when signed in by a member to a maximum of three times in any one year unless attending with a visiting bowls club or when a premise licence is in force for a ticketed event, quiz night or public event.

This rule applies to members’ husbands, wives, partners, and family where additional membership has not been taken out.

The committee is aware that these rules are being ignored which puts our licence at risk. Consequently, bar staff and committee may request proof of membership where this is in doubt.

Membership cards should be produced when requested. Alternatively there is a list of members in the club which can be checked.

We regret the need for this measure and trust members will not be offended if asked for proof of membership.
