7/12/2022: MEMBERS VOTE AT AGM

ABINGTON BOWLING CLUB held its Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, 6th December. There will be very few changes to committee for 2023. The management committee - president, secretary and treasurer - remains unaltered. All officers are listed on our contacts page.

One position that remains unfilled is Assistant Treasurer. If anyone is interested in volunteering their services, please contact the treasurer Allen Johnson. The role would involve basic duties, such as cash counting, organising raffles and the 100 Club draw. Just a few things to ease Allen's workload.

 

16/11/2022: FOLLOWING A LONG BATTLE with bowel and liver cancer, Abington B.C. member Dave Jones died on the morning of Tuesday, 15th November. The club sends its condolences to his family and friends, many of which Dave made in his last few years, after transferring to Abington in 2018.

 

Dave wasn’t a member of Abington for very long, but in the five seasons he played here, he left a huge impression on our club. His terrific talent was matched by a determination, and a sheer force of will, that kept him bowling almost right to the end. In fact, Dave achieved his greatest successes after his diagnosis. Most notably, some outstanding displays crowned him as men’s club champion in 2021. And in the season just gone, he was part of a rink that qualified for the national championships, as the winners of the Northants county senior fours.

That rink was skipped by current club president Jonathan Brown. The previous year, the two of them had come within a whisker of qualifying for the nationals in the men’s pairs. Brown paid tribute to Dave as “a great friend, fighter and inspiration”. Man of the match on many occasions, and having served with enthusiasm on our committee almost from the moment he joined, Abington mourns a loss that will be felt acutely both on and off the green.

UPDATE: Dave's funeral will be held on Wednesday, 30th November, 10:15am, at the Counties Crematorium in Northampton (NN4 9RN). The wake will be staged at Abington B.C. after the service.

13/10/2022: ABINGTON B.C. is very sad to report the passing, aged 84, of one of our longest-standing members, Robert Hall - although he'll always be far better known by his nickname 'Mick'.

 

Mick was one of the few remaining Abington members whose time with us goes back to the 1970s. Until his recent illness, he had been a constant presence on our green for nearly half a century, and a great supporter of the place. He served a season as Saturday captain in 1998 and two years as club president, in 2002 and 2006. His finest hour came in 2001, when he won the club singles. Two years earlier, he and Reg Jones were the club pairs champions.

Our condolences to his family and friends.

 

UPDATE: Mick's funeral will be held on Friday, 28th October, 4:15pm, at the Counties Crematorium in Northampton (NN4 9RN). The family have requested no flowers and no mourning wear. The wake will be staged at Abington B.C. in the evening.
