First outing of Men's new County shirts at Windsor and Eton Bowling Club.  Wednesday 1st May 2019.

On 25th March Hollingbury Park club (storage shed and port-a-cabin) was broken into. The lock on the shed where they store their bowling equipment was ripped off but nothing was taken, they couldn’t break open the door. The lock on the shed where the mower and materials were stored was broken. We ‘lost’ two leaf blowers. A window on the port-a-cabin was smashed but nothing was taken, they didn’t gain entry.  We reported the incident to the police and our insurance company.  On 4th April there was another break-in, this time the took the mower (£6,000 April 2014) and broke another window in the port-a-cabin. Entry to the grounds was gained via the back gate, secured with a Council lock. To get the mower out of the grounds they had to remove two sections of the electric fence which was still alive. They also smashed the security light sensor on the clubhouse.  Hollingbury Park took a photograph of the mower after the first incident, in case they back a second time.  SCB warn Clubs that they should make sure any machines are stored in a very secure environment.  Please keep a lookout for Hollingbury Park's mower.  The thieves may try to sell it to SCB Clubs.  This is what it looks like:
