Our chairman will as always sent the first wood on its way, as normal he used the 4 original woods that are over a 100 years old and were used by a past member Bramwell Watson (initials on the bowls at B.W. very apt ), who won many county titles and bowled from 1921 to 1961, winning the Calne singles title 16 times.
