Beckingham Bowls Club

by | 11 January 2021 | Notice

Clarrie Brumby, a long-time member of Beckingham Bowls Club, has sadly passed away. He was 90 years old and died peacefully in his sleep on 18th November. As a member of the village bowls club, he was an accomplished bowler who contributed a lot to the club as a player and through his efforts in the upkeep of the bowling green site. He won the Club Pairs Trophy in 2007, partnered by Bill Bryan, and the Club Triples Trophy in 2008 in partnership with John Foster and Nev Hethershaw who passed away earlier in the month. He regularly spent time at the bowling green maintaining the surrounding hedges and helping with green preparation.
Ill health stopped him playing in 2010, but he continued to enjoy attending the club’s Gala Days, Annual Lunches and Presentation Evenings along with his late wife Barbara. He would help out selling raffle tickets and make donations to the club. He was always friendly and welcoming with a mischievous sense of humour, not only to club members, but to villagers in general. He was earlier an accomplished cricketer and did valuable work for many years for the North Notts Lions, and his funeral service took place on 3rd December at Babworth Cremarorium, with donations in his memory for North Notts Lions.
