Bookings & Events
We are pleased to announce some forthcoming events to be hosted by the club. In date order, these are:
On Saturday 24th August we will be holding a disco and barbecue, weather permitting. Come along and make this night the highlight of your bank holiday weekend.
On Saturday 19th October we have a male singing duo called Fat Chance. These will entertain with sing-along versions of 60s and 70s classic songs.
Saturday 2nd November sees the return of the popular F.B.Jammers. This collective of singers and musicians have packed the club out on two previous occasions. Their music is extremely varied containing something for everyone which explains their popularity.
Another familiar act, Jackie Dijon, returns to the club on Saturday 16th November. No doubt she’ll be on top form singing a selection of covers and mixing them with jokes and humorous stories.
On Christmas Eve (Tuesday 24th December) our favourite DJ, Ian Bohannan, will be on the decks playing dance floor fillers and plenty of Christmas tunes to help with the build up to the big day.
The committee is always open to new ideas from club members. For that reason, a few years ago a suggestion book was placed on the table beneath the whiteboard to the left side of the bar as you enter the club. This book is checked before every committee meeting so it’s contents can be considered for discussion however it is very rare for it to contain anything new.
If anyone has any ideas as to how the club could be better run, improve the facilities, etc. please write them down in the book. If you’d like feedback on your comments then you’ll also have to leave your name, otherwise you can remain anonymous.
Card Payments At The Bar
Payments can now be made by card at the club bar. All major card types are accepted including Visa Credit and Debit, Mastercard and American Express. Due to the very low levels of cash kept on our premises, cashback is not available.
Also, there is no intention to issue receipts as our card machine is not connected to a printer and alternative means would prove time-consuming for the bar staff. Thank you for your understanding.
We are pleased to announce that Malcolm Wragg has very kindly volunteered to fulfil the role of Outlane Bowling Club’s very first Safeguarding Officer. We will be making his contact details available behind the bar in due course.
The role of a Safeguarding Officer is to be a point of contact and advice for any members or visitors who feel threatened, intimidated or uncomfortable while they are at the club. This is primarily aimed at children and vulnerable adults but Malcolm will be open to approach from anyone in need of his help. The bowling authorities, our club and other bowling clubs are all committed to the safety and welfare of their members and visitors.
Many thanks to Malcolm for offering to carry out this role.
