Jen Cookson ran a very successful ‘Beach Party’ at the club on Saturday 13th July on a lovely sunny evening. 

Well done to all those who helped to set up and pack away for the benefit of all those attending. 

Can you spot the good, the bad and the ugly!



Jen Cookson organised a great fun evening on Friday 1st March and those attended entered into the spirit of the evening by dressing in black and white. A great meal was had by all consisting of tarragon chicken and apple pie and cream for afters. We also completed a clever pictorial quiz with cryptic clues to identify London underground stations, beetle drive and a Rat Pack sing song. Many thanks to all those who organised and participated in a fun evening.

Graham's Strollathon


Yes, we managed to walk to every bowls club in Bournemouth and Poole; a total of 27.65 miles (just over a marathon) and your sponsorship raised well over £2,000 for Prostate Cancer UK. 

So, to all of those who walked with me and those who so generously donated to the President's charity in 2018 a big 


A Colourful Day at Branksome 

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple with a red hat that doesn't go and doesn't suit me,
and I shall spend my pension on Brandy and summer gloves ….


To celebrate Ladies Invitation Day, Red and Purple were in abundance but not too much Brandy!

A great fun afternoon of bowls and social chat followed by a slap-up tea, what more could one want?
