Lea Short Mat Bowling Club
Hi there folks!
Just to let you know
that we are celebrating
our 25th aniversary
The first Game with
Norman Davies in the middle
But who are the others???
Lea Short Mat Bowling Club,
was formed in 1991, when a few enthusiasts got together during the month of April to play
Short Mat Bowls in the new Village Hall.
In 1992, under
the inspiration of Norman Davies, the chairman of Lea Short Mat
Bowling Club, Lea joined with Fownhope SMBC to pioneer the formation of
a County Short Mat Bowling Association. Only two clubs in Hereforshire
were interested in this move at the time.
Therefore, the original
association was formed with three clubs from Gloucestershire,
Brockweir in the Forest of Dean.
This joint arrangement
remained until 1999
when by mutual agreement
each county formed its own
Following the AGM
The Officers of the Management Commitee are
