Audrey Blood (L) with president Wendy Dillon

Richmond Memorial Women's Bowls recognises Audrey Blood OAM, for thirty years of bowling. During her thirty years of bowling, Audrey was the president of the Maxwell Women's Bowling Club and has participated and won championships at a local and district level. Audrey has been a member at Richmond since 2003. We hope we will see Audrey on the green for many more years.

Eileen Lutton (L) with fellow bowlers Joan Ryan and Audrey Bellamy

Our life member and patron Eileen Lutton sadly has decided to resign from being our patron. Eileen became a member of women's bowling in 1983. During her years as a bowler she competed and won in championships at a local and district level. On her retirement from the green she continued her interest in the club and bowls and became our Patron in 2014. Her fellow bowlers wish to thank her for her company and support over these years and wish her all the best.

Helen Mackie (R) with president Wendy Dillon

We also sadly say farewell to Helen Mackie. Helen has held the position of coach, national umpire and delegate for many years. Helen has competed and won in championship games at a local, district and state levels. Helen will be missed and we would like to thanks for all her service and support. Best wishes to you and your husband in life and for the travelling you have planned.

Another First for the ladies of RMWBC. This ANZAC DAY the ladies were invited to join the men to play in the Fred Roach Memorial Trophy match. This was in recognition of the contribution and sacrifices the women of Australia made during the years Australia was involved in wars. Twelve ladies stepped out onto the green and had a very enjoyable game. We look forward to this becoming are regular event each ANZAC DAY. Winners of the trophy (above L-R) Barbara Cross, Phil Hughes, Mary Gibbson.

Richmond Club ladies bowlers would like to extend an invitation to all ladies in the Hawkesbury to come along on Thursday Mornings at 0900hrs and join us for a game of bowls
Our "white leg horn" image is now gone and today there is a more relaxed dress code, bright colours, comfortable and stylish uniform is now worn. No uniform required at all unless you want to play in competitions, you just need flat soled shoes, any colour and style.
We have bowls you can use and coaching and guidance is free.
There is also social bowls each Tuesday at 0900hrs. 

To the young who are reading this. Lawn Bowls is a great sport and its future rest with you. This is a sport you can do most of your life, it has an extremely low injury rate. You can take your bowls on holidays, play on any club bowling green and make new friendships. Lawn bowls is a recognised international sport and gives you the opportunity to represent your country as we saw many young faces on the green in the Commonwealth Games in Brisbane this year. As with women's cricket this game has the potential for sponsorships and income. 

Lawn Bowls, embrace it and be apart of its future.
