WELCOME Welcome FROM THE TEAM 2017 has seemingly come and almost gone in the blink of an eye. It has been another successful year for the Club on and off the Green's with what I can only foresee as a dry hot summer ahead. Financially the Club has improved its position during the 2016/17 year with anticipation for another profitable year moving forward. The new air conditioning system install is currently in progress and is expected to be completed by the start of December, all works going to schedule. The Board and Management would like to apologise for the inconvenience during this time frame when there will be no air conditioning facilities for the Club but we believe this new system will have numerous benefits over the years to come for all Members' and guests to enjoy the facilities we offer. During the months of October and November the Club will not be hosting entertainment of a Saturday night due to the limitations of air flow. Bingo has also been temporarily cancelled

as the Function Room is unusable and the constant interruption by tradespeople entering and exiting the Club on a daily basis. We will look to re-establish in early 2018. The Members' Christmas Party will be held on Saturday, 9th December from 6pm with entertainment by Dave James Tribute Show. Purchase your tickets and book your table at Reception. Our annual Ham raffles will commence on Wednesday, 22nd November for five weeks until 20th December. 30 hams to be given away each week! Stay safe over the Christmas and New Year break, and we look forward to another great year in 2018.

Grant Walden CEO

RICK SOUTHAM - GREENKEEPER Rick has worked as the Greenkeeper for PBBC since 1998. What does your role involve on a day to day basis? It's an early start every day at 5.30/6am, 7 days a week. My responsibilities include tending to the greens and surrounds which entails cutting, rolling, scarifying, coring, top dressing, spraying, watering, bug control, preparing greens in accordance to the Club's playing programme, marking all greens for play, prepare shade covers, mats and jacks prior to game commencement, not to mention all surfaces require fertilisation and watering constantly on a monitored basis. Every day is different but it's always great to see bowlers out on the facilities enjoying a game of bowls.
