What happened in 2023


Thanks to funding from Ampthill Town Council and McCarthy & Stone we are very pleased to announce that we are now the proud owners of a Defibrillator machine.  

The machine is available when the Bowls Club or the Kings Arms Gardens are open.


After almost 3 years of waiting the refurbishment works have eventually started on the club.  The scaffolding is up and the workmen are onsite.  By the end of April we will have a new roof, insulation, electrics upgraded amongst a number of other upgrades all ready for the beginning of the season.

What happened in 2022

HM QUEEN ELIZABETH II 1926 - 2022 ...

Our thoughts today are with Queen Elizabeths II's family as they mourn the loss of a mother, grandmother and great grandmother, yesterday 8 September 2022.  The longest reigning monarch in the history of the United Kingdom, a Queen who pledged to serve her country from the day she became Queen when she was only 25 years of age, and at the age of 96, only 2 days before her death, she welcomed the new Prime Minister, Liz Truss, keeping her promise to do her duty until the end. Thank you for your service ma'am, may you rest in peace your Majesty.  God Save the King (King Charles III).

In Remembrance ...


When I rose this morning the world was the same,

When I laid my head this evening there was a different reign.

Our Majesty The Queen has sadly passed,

During her seven decades she has remained steadfast.

A promise made at age 25 she has kept,

A dutiful life she has had to accept.

Alone she has been this past year,

Without her husband, her love, she has shed many a tear.

Once he had gone she appeared alone,

Still stoic but shaken to the bone.

Her passing has shocked her people,

It has left them feeling sad and feeble.

Her duty done until the last days of her life,

Through war, a pandemic and much family strife.

Now she can rest, her job is done,

Back with her love leaving the crown to her son.

God Bless you your Majesty

What better combination is there than a beautiful sunny afternoon, a ice cold Pimms and a lovely homemade scone with fresh cream and jam - well that's the combination we had at the August Cameo club get together.  And what a great success the afternoon was, well attended by our members and also a few non members.  Definitely a hard one to follow, or should we just do it all over again!


A wonderful celebration party was held at the club for one of our members, Jean Osborne, who celebrated her 90th birthday.  Surrounded by family and friends Jean had a wonderful evening catching up with members old and new.  Preceeding this the Jean Osborne Cup competition was played with many members taking part.  Patsy Dobson and Nicolette Wade made their way through to the finals with Nicollete taking the winning points.  A BIG congratulations to Jean on her 90th and Nicolette on her win.
