New Clubhouse, The Apps Healey Award and Two CA Diplomas for Members
2011 was a wonderful year for Chester, as we attained our long awaited pavilion at the start of the season after 15 years of the horrible hut. The pavilion is in constant use and we are still on speaking terms with the 3 bowling clubs with whom we share it.
The Grand Opening was performed in July by Barry Keen, the Chairman of the CA, in the presence of the Lord Mayor of Chester, sundry Councillors, the Chairman of the NWFed, guests from clubs throughout the North West and club members.
The sun shone and guests were still playing croquet at 5.45pm when we started taking down themarquee. Barry Keen also presented the CA’s Apps Healey Award to the club as the club with 3 or 4 lawns which hadmade most progress over the past 2 years.
Recently 2 of our members, Mollie McBride and Janet Davies were awarded CA Diplomas for services to croquet (particularly at club level) over the years.
