Bury Hospice – Light Up A Life 2020

Whitefield Bowling Club are proud to be supporting Bury Hospice’s Light up a Life this December.


LIGHT UP A LIFE 2020

Bury Hospice’s annual remembrance service entitled ‘Light up a Life’ is an important and greatly valued moment in the hospice’s calendar.

Bury Hospice’s ‘Light up a Life’ service is an event that takes place during the festive season, bringing our community together to remember, reflect and celebrate the lives of loved ones, and those who have touched our lives during this year. An important part of the afternoon is the opportunity to remember the person close to your heart by lighting a candle and recording their name in our book of online memories.

Please consider joining us in December at our ‘light up a Life’ event which is a celebration of the memories of those most precious to us. Everyone who would like to experience our Light up a Life event can do so by joining us online within your own home (as we are providing Light up a Life packs).

How to run a business in lockdown: Whitefield’s 138 year-old bowling club

Whitefield Bowling Club has recently been featured in an article by Tide Business Banking, looking at the difficulties faced running a sports club during the coronavirus pandemic.

Nearly 800 Tide members run sports clubs or businesses, and hundreds more run other recreation activity businesses, either self-employed or running a company. Many found their work paralysed in March 2020 when, to slow down the spread of coronavirus, the Government ordered clubs, gyms and leisure facilities to close and gatherings to be cancelled.

Tide member David Bevan is the Company Secretary/Director and one of three Trustees of Whitefield Bowling Club, near Bury in Greater Manchester.

New Website Launched

We have recently launched our new website. The website will be used to keep members up-to-date with links to local leagues for all the current teams at WBC. It will also feature an events diary containing listings for all competitions and a news section for announcements and notices.

We also hope to attract new members to the club and the website will provide an easy to navigate platform with online forms for people looking to hire the green or join our club.
