At The Health Club we will always strive to make things better for our members.

Woodborough Carpet Bowls Club

On Friday 17th December we held our Christmas fuddle with 20+ members attending and feasting on a great Christmas buffet. As usual good ventilation and hand sterilisation was provided to minimise any risk from the dreaded Omnicron.

Woodborough Carpet Bowls club meets on Friday evenings in Woodborough Village Hall. Membership is open to residents of Woodborough and surrounding areas, and you’ll find us a friendly and welcoming bunch.

Carpet bowls (or Short Mat Bowls) is a smaller version of lawn bowls played indoors all of the year round, with smaller bowls on special mats – having the great advantage of not being affected by the weather! We don’t take it too seriously, enjoying the social aspects of meeting friends just as much as playing the game.

If you’re interested, but concerned about not being a bowler, don’t worry – we’ll show you how it’s done, and all the members will be happy to help you.

If you’d like to talk about coming along (your first visit is free and £2 after that), please get in touch with Michael Dobbs on 9652376.

The Manny Foster Bell

St. Swithun’s Church Bell Ringers


Are you interested in trying bell ringing as a new activity?

No subscription is involved. Your enthusiasm is all that is required. The bells are on your doorstep or a short walk away.

Ringing is a good form of gentle aerobic exercise to keep you fit. No need to be musical or strong. A perfect social activity for all ages (12+). It’s for all faiths and none.

Bring family and friends with you and do it as a team. Starting from easy ringing, develop your skills as far as you want to go. There’s always something different to try: it keeps the mind active.

Interested? Then please let me know that you are. I can then plan ahead for an introductory visit to the bells as soon as the present period of Covid uncertainty has ended and when we are all happier with meeting up with others.
