EHDC Councillors Support Clanfield Bowls & Sports Club Solar Panels Project
A Club spokesperson commented:
The Club sought advice from Lisa Clements (EHDC Community Development Officer) about funding opportunities from the local councillors. Once the Club committee had received positive pre-application advice from EHDC, their landlord, Clanfield Parish Council, gave its blessing to the project. Applications for funding were met with a great response with Cllr Agate, Cllr Evans, Cllr Gottlieb, Cllr Hatter, Cllr Moon and Cllr Woodard each agreeing to commit support. The solar panels were installed on the morning of 24 August and by that evening all cooking in the Club was done using energy generated by the solar panels!
Clanfield Bowls & Sports Club will be arranging a ‘solar panels launch’ in due course when they will be able to show Councillors and others the benefit of renewable energy.

Platinum Jubilee Celebrations, 3 June 2022
Triples: Gaynor, Keith and Mike (R)
Following on from the Roll Up were the games for the younger members of the Club which were fun and a great success. It was then the turn of the ‘grown ups’ to play the Spider and a series of other exacting challenges, many of which left us wondering if we’d every bowled a bowl before!!
By now the afternoon was well advanced and our thoughts turned to the BBQ which was being prepared and cooked by Peter (L) and Mike (T), ably supported by Frances and Barbara. The hot dogs and burgers were cooked to perfection and accompanied by plenty of fried onions and salad. What more could we need? After a short break to let the hot dogs and burgers settle a selection of delicious desserts were unveiled. The star attraction was the Jubilee Cake made by Barbara which, once David had made the ‘first cut’, was a great hit with us all.
During all the above the bar was open so, as the evening progressed, we all became more and more relaxed before wending our way home for a well-deserved rest.
