2023 Presentation evening

On the 2nd of December, 2023, we all gathered for our annual presentation evening that we hosted at Edgmond Village Hall. It was well attended, with people waiting to receive their trophies from the season.

 There was a disco and karaoke, and an excellent buffet for us to enjoy. There was plenty of merriment and fun. After the presentation of the trophies, the disco got underway, and people danced the rest of the night away.

Lights Update

The new energy efficient LED floodlights have now been fitted and are in full use. This helps the club to be more energy efficient, and have a better playing experience in latter part of the season when the days become shorter. This has been made possible by way of a grant from the Telford and Wrekin climate change fund.

About the Telford and Wrekin Climate Change Fund

In 2019, Telford & Wrekin Council declared a climate emergency and committed to its operations being carbon neutral by 2030, with an aspiration for the borough to be carbon neutral by 2030 too. Its Climate Change Fund was created in 2021, and a second round was opened in 2022, to support the community in its efforts to achieve this goal. Applications were invited from local businesses, community groups and schools to fund projects enabling them to reduce their carbon emissions. To date, the council’s Climate Change Fund has awarded more than £335,000 in grants to deliver this work.

EDGMOND BC renovations:

As it is that time of year, and the bowls season has ended for most, and many have put their bowls away for the year, it gives our Green keeper and some of the club members a chance to prepare the green for a well-deserved rest and enable it to recover from the previous season. Many thanks to Paul Mytton for his help and to all the EDGMOND members who turned up today to help. Thanks to Paul Law for his superb video
