As we are in a Tier 1 area it does not affect any of our clubs who have gained Safe Bowls Status

17-Oct-2020: We presented Peter Winter with his Presidents Badge and Plaque, after thanking him for many many years of Service for the Association and indeed English Short Mat Bowls. We also presented Muriel Winter with a bouquet of flowers for being the woman behind the man. We also took the opportunity of presenting Barry Fitch (Chairman) The Martlets with a certificate in recognition of their club winning their league outright, even though the leagues had to be cancelled this year.

We also took the opportunity to present Jean Armour-Milne with a bouquet of flowers (and a pack of paracetamol) for her tireless work as County Safeguarding Officer getting our clubs back to “safe bowls”.

I was introduced to Short Mat Bowls in 2005, and have been "hooked" ever since! I have played for my local club (Cowfold) ever since. I have represented my County West Sussex at all levels. I have been my club secretary since 2006 and in 2016 I became County Secretary & Membership Secretary. I recently took on the task of building this website with no previous experience, although my background included working with computers!

  1. Congrats to all behind the making of the Web Site.

    It looks good and off to a smart start.

    If it means that my Inbox remains half full when I go on holiday and am away from my desktop where I
    keep the info. I keep the info just in case a knowledgeable member asks about the West Sussex County

    So far the members have not asked but you never know. ….

  2. Website is looking good but I can only access it through Jim’s facebook page. Like the fact you can now get the entry forms. Well done ! This has been a long time waiting for but well worth it.

  3. Message from Anthony (The Sussex Blood Runners):

    Hi Jean,

    Harry and I were pleased to be able to represent SERV at the short mat bowling competition. It is the first time we had ever seen this version of bowls and found it very interesting (might have a try at it one of these days!) The incredible amount you raised for SERV will go a long way in helping keep us on the road for which we are very grateful .

    Many thanks for your hospitality and for an enjoyable day.

    I look forward to meeting you all again at your AGM in June.

    Kind regards,

  4. Robin or Roger could you email me a copy of that Chobham competition flyer, I tried to copy it but it wont copy . Regards Ron

  5. Hi Roger,
    Could you put on the web site with regard to rule E6 (a forcing shot ) what force a forcing shot is.
    Is it a shot that just hits the fender or one that moves a few woods about as there is a lot of conjecture over the strength of a forcing shot and some clarity would be appreciated.
