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.
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
