Shoot for Gold, August 2019

As those of you who were at the field yesterday evening will know I held the August draw followed by the September draw. To save confusion, this message only refers to the August draw the results of which are shown below. Ophelia Clarke, our youngest member, drew the balls.

GOLD (£25) ………………………………………………. Imogen Clarke (52)

RED (£15) …………………………………………………. Sonia Burton (34)

BLUE (£10) ……………………………………………….. Ophelia Clarke (48)

Congratulations to Imogen and Ophelia; this is an unprecedented situation where two sisters have won in the same month, and not only that, it was Ophelia’s first entry! Our Treasurer will send a cheque to your Mum shortly.

I hope this gives assurance and hope to everyone who is sceptical of the probability of winning a prize. It does happen and there have been several first time winners. So please join up if you have not already.

As ever

Clubhouse Funding - Great News

Hello to all - great news.

It's been confirmed today that Sport England will be supporting us with funds of £90,000. The following script is to appear in the A&T in early September, so watch out for the news item and take a look at what it's done to our thermometer on the website!!

And don't forget, whether it's £10, £20 or £40 it's dead easy to sponsor a plank.

thermometerSway Bowmen get great support from Sport England.

Sway Bowmen who are raising money for a new clubhouse have just had notice of a huge injection of funds from Sport England, who confirmed at the end of August that £90,000 has been awarded to the project, this brings the total of funds raised to  £107,424.

With further applications made for the balance of funding required to meet the £150,000 target, the club is now in a position to consider the start of the build process which is likely to commence in the new year.

Simon Curtis - club chairman, confirmed the news to the A&T and noted that the support from Sport England has been critical to the success of the project and will hopefully encourage others to make donations. " A new clubhouse is so important to the future health and development of the club; allowing us to grow and retain membership and at the same time offering secure, quality facilities which will allow members to be coached in the winter months and to have a proper meeting aand social facilities all year round in a comfortable environment."
