Our Ladies Tournament will be taking place on 8th August 2019. This is a very popular event with the visiting ladies in no small part because of the involvement and support given by our club members. Our tournament has its own page on this site so please have a look.
The Tractor Fest will be on 17th 18th August 2019. This is a huge event for both the village and our bowls club. With our members playing a vital roll in running the tea tent this is another occasion where the involvement and support from our club members is key.

Club members played a key role in running the "tea tent" selling tea, cold drinks, coffee and homemade cakes. Over £4000 was taken over the two days. Hard work but also a lot of fun. Our club received a donation of £1500 from Tractorfest - a fantastic boost for club funds.
Message from Jeannette " The people of Biddenden are wonderful! The bakers achieved the target of 120+cakes of every variety you could think of.. Yes, coffee and walnut topped the pole again this year!! The 45 volunteers who served tea and cake, set up the tent, washed dishes and did every other task needed, worked so hard and smiled all day. I was overawed with all the help, support and kindness that was offered and shown over the three days, even making up cake boxes, transporting cakes and equipment, volunteering to wash table cloths and tea towels. It made the overall task so much easier. So thank you ever so much to everyone - you did a sterling job. WELL DONE"
Pictures below of some of the willing volunteers - sorry I did not get a picture of everyone who did so much to make it a huge success.
