IMPORTANT NEWS ABOUT WALLASEY WEBSITE AND NEW RESULTS SERVICE

For all Association members who like to keep records of their own and their teams performances during the season, I can now inform you that we have now adopted the Crown Green Bowling Results Service

 operated by Mb Bowling results and currently used by the Birkenhead Evening and Afternoon Leagues, the Bebington & District League and the North Wirral League.

For all the Wallasey results, match sheets, Individual & Team Averages please enter into your web browser    http://bowlingresults.co.uk/wallasey/  where you will be able to access a mine of information.

You can also see this website at that address so it is worthwhile book marking the site once you access it.

My thanks go to Mike Beckett for all his help in setting up this excellent results service and for his speedy response to all my requests for help.

Fred Evans

It is with great sadness that I have to report that another 'Gentleman of Bowls, Fred Evans, passed away at Arrowe Park hospital yesterday after a short illness. Fred was a long time member of the Harrison Park Bowling Club and as well as being  a past Secretary and President of the club, he was their only Life Member, such was the high regard he was held in by the Harrison Park members past and present. Fred was a highly competitive opponent even in his later years but was a gentleman both on an off the green. Our condolences go to all his family and friends at this sad time and as soon as any funeral details are known I will post them on this site.

Ethel Gilmore

I am really saddened to have to report that Ethel Gilmore passed away in Arrowe Park Hospital on Tuesday evening. Ethel was well known throughout the Wallasey and Wirral Bowling Community and will be sadly missed by all her family as well as all her friends from the bowling circuit. Ethel was a long time member at both Harrison Park and  Marine Park Ladies Bowling Clubs  and was a great supporter of our Wallasey Charity Days and up until the last two occasions (because of failing health conditions) Ethel was in attendance at every match for the George Gilmore Memorial Trophy no matter what the weather was like and presented the Trophy to the winning Captain. Our condolences go Ethel's son Dave and daughter Joan, her grandchildren Matthew, Nicola, Mark and Lee and to her great grandchildren George, Lucy, Kieren, Tommy, Nathan and Oscar.

The Funeral Service will take place at St Nicholas Church, Wallasey Village at 1-00pm on Monday 12th January followed by a cremation at Landican at 2-00pm.
