With the rain finally giving up, Pulborough Bowls Club welcomed the public for the Bowls England 'Big Bowls Weekend' on Bank Holiday Monday from 2pm.

Players joined the locals for some Bowling fun on the green at Pulborough's third Open Day. The turnout was positive, with the hope that some may join the team in the future.

Wednesday the 29th saw two Pulborough triples travel to Southbourne for the Brookes Motors League. One team was victorious, scoring enough to see the away side take the match 29/28 and four valuable League points, leaving Southbourne with just two. The winning rink was Captain John Brown, Trevor Bushell and Jenny Patterson.
