A few highlights from the end of last year...
P&D Presentation Evening 2019

The 2019 P&D Presentation Evening was held on November 8th with 94 attendees - the biggest showing for some time.

Our special Guest of Honour on the night was Hazel Marke, Bowls England President 2019.

Hazel and P&D President Paul Kennington handed out the Winner & Runners-Up Trophies, the majority of whom were present.

Here are all the Winners and Riders (with thanks to our own "Bath It Daily" Alan Joyner)

Honours Boards

In keeping with the P&D's attempt to make a record of the history of Bowls and Bowlers in Portsmouth photographs are being added to the various honours boards as and when they become available. It is hoped this will capture memorabilia before it is lost to time and give everybody a chance to put faces to the many names who have achieved success in the sport. It can be nice to see faces of long lost friends and adversaries.

If you have photographs of any individual or team, whether they have achieved greatness or not, please let the Secretary borrow them so they may be copied and posted. Unless we make the effort now we may never get the chance again.

But please don't stop there. If you have photos of your club, its members or any events that might make interesting viewing we can add these to our photo gallery.

Let's not lose our history and heritage. Many thanks in anticipation.


The P&D needs your help

Dave Wildman in drag

We are presently trying to capture the history of the P&D by placing on record within this website as much information as possible before it is lost.

If you have anything that might help please let us know.

Things that will be of particular interest are old photos and information to fill gaps on honours boards.

Everything and anything will be gratefully received. Let's list it before we lose it.


A Big thank you

Our appreciation to everybody who has contributed in our quest to fill in the missing information on Honours Boards. Please keep it coming. We strive to compile a complete record of all those who are worthy to call themselves winners in this great district.

We hope you find discovery of historical 'artefacts' relating to the P&D interesting.

Members of the P&D are actively encouraged to submit reports and photos of their matches, club activities or any articles that might be considered amusing or of general interest.
