With regret I have to announce that Elsie De'ath has passed away. Elsie was a member for many years and as she celebrated her 100th birthday last year I realise a lot of our bowlers will not know her as it was many years ago that she was at the club. The funeral will be on Tuesday 20th March, 13:20 at Barham Crematorium. Afterwards at the Hampton Inn, Hampton Pier Avenue, Herne Bay.

Michael Tibby RIP

Wednesday 28th February 2018 9:49am | Obituaries

It is with deep regret that I have to announce that I have been advised that Michael Tibby has passed away. The funeral will take place on Wednesday 14th March at midday. The service will be held at the chapel in Herne Bay Cemetery. Because of the limited space Sheila has requested that only a few (maybe Committee members) attend the service. However the reception will be held in the club house and members are welcome to attend from about 1pm on that day.

Please note that we have been advised by Sheila Tibby that it will be family flowers only for Michael's funeral. Any donations are to go to the British Lung Foundation via or envelopes will be available on the day.

Sheila has arranged for the celebrant to come back to the club and speak to everyone there.
