It is with sadness and regret that I've been asked to post that Nursery stalwart Tommy Shone has passed away after a stroke. Tommy has been one of Stockports best players and always had a kind word for everyone who visited the Nursery. He will be sadly missed. Condolences to Tommy's family and friends.

This years Annual Charity game between Smarty’s Bamy Army and Michelle’s Men (and ladies) will once again be played at Glossop BC on Easter Monday, 28th March, getting underway at 11am. As last year's pairs format seemed quite popular we’ll stick with it, so that everyone should get at least a couple of games in. Anyone who wants to play, regardless of ability will get a game. All we ask is that players donate £5 each to the pot or £2 for juniors. There will be the usual raffle (all donations of prizes to the raffle gratefully received) and other fun games, as well as refreshments available all day. If anyone has any suggestions for this years good cause, or causes, let me know via email at or phone on 07580 098884. Any good cause or charity considered. Last year everyone contributed to raising about £800. Thanks again to Glossop BC for allowing us the use of the green and facilities and to Nigel at Perrigo Sports for their kind sponsorship.
