Downton Bowling Club
Tribute to Les Cousins
The club was saddened by news of the recent death of one of its Life Members, Les Cousins. Les was one of the original members who helped build an organised Club as well as physically helping build the Club House structure, including the Social Club. At various times, Les was Club Captain, President and Greenkeeper.
A club spokesman said “It’s true to say that Les was a legend at the Club and within the game locally, as well as county wide.”
Activities continue at the Bowling Club, even in the closed season. There are regular Coffee Mornings, with cake, raffles and bingo. Short mat bowls continues in the Clubhouse on Thursday afternoons at 2:15pm, from now until March 14. A Race Night and a Skittles Evening are planned to take place soon. If you are interested in short mat bowling, or in joining Downton Bowling Club, contact Mike Hallam on 513539.
