With the gates closing on Sunday 30th April at the Inn on the Green, Javea Green Bowls Club held their final event at their home of 30 years! Fittingly it was the Annual Captain versus Chairman event, that has always been “fun”, while retaining a competitive edge and was enjoyed by over 50 Members. The match literally came down to the final bowl. Robin Flaxman, one of our newer bowlers, was the person who ultimately played the shot that won the match for the Chairman’s team. The Trophy was presented by Glenn Tullett, from our Sponsors Lumon Currency Exchange and Transfers, to our Chairman Joe Schulein. Our Captain then presented 2 cheques for 1000 euros each to Help of Marina Alta and Cancer Care Javea. The festivities continued with a superb “hog roast” lunch and entertainment from our own Bob Johnson.
While Inn on the Green is closing this is by no means the end of the road for Javea Green Bowls Club. Fortunately our friendly neighbours down the road at Calpe Bowls Club have agreed to a “green “sharing arrangement, while plans for a permanent home in Javea are explored. We are currently getting lots of support and help from Javea Council through their Sports and Parks Departments. Watch this space for future announcements.
