A bit of history....

The Southampton and District Women's Bowling Association began in 1948 and, thankfully, starting filing annual reports with the Hampshire County Women's Bowling Association from 1949. Each season's summary was published (at the beginning of the following year) in the county's year book. We've been trying to trace all of these as they are much better source of information than the minutes of the Association's Council meetings.

We're happy to share, so here they all are.

A bit of warning - the pages scan sideways, apologies (depending on your device you should be able to rotate them to make reading easier). Nonetheless they are fascinating... sit down with a cuppa and be taken back to bygone days.
