Today I have posted some pics on my West End Bowlers blog celebrating the start, albeit two weeks late, of the 2013 outdoor bowls season. It was typically anarchic as my photograph of Jim lying down shows. West End Bowls (& Social Club) are always in need of new members and the great thing is that, because of a grant the club received lat year from Sport England, anyone interested in playing bowls can play with the club free-of-charge at first. It's a great deal and Nottingham City Council are being very supportive, having agreed to sale West End Bowls four 'open' season tickets.
We're also a couple of weeks away from the 'Bluebell season'. It's very short and not to be missed — which is why I take myself off to Oldmoor Wood, near Strelley village every year, for a walk and a couple of hours surrounded by Bluebells. Last year, I blogged about my visit with friends from Stoke-on-Trent (click here to see blog). This year I planning to visit with friends from the Beeston WEA writing class I attend. If you live in Nottingham and want to go, see my map below, which promotes Nottingham City Transport's 35 bus route as well.
This is my idea of heaven. Perfection.
