Oakham Bowling Club 1910-2010 Researched by Rick Tarleton & John Hornsby Contact: oakhambowlingclub.co.uk for further details Oakham Bowling Club published this booklet as part of their programme to celebrate the centenary of the club’s formation in May 1910. Its chapters include the early years of the club’s formation, how it has developed over the years, the history of The Vale, home of the club, the trials of achieving a good green and details of matches played and social activities undertaken. Also included are appendices which list club officers and competition winners. The text is interspersed throughout with photographs and cartoons. Considering the lack of archival material the researchers have produced an interesting history and it is hoped that researchers of the club’s history in 2110 will have more records to consult! May present and future members of the Oakham Bowling Club continue to enjoy their bowling for many years to come. Sheila Sleath for RLH&RS
