Shropshire Highways have just announced that Soulton Road Wem (B5065) will be closed from 3 September 2018 for 6 weeks in order to facilitate the repairs to the bridge by Soulton Hall. There will be quite a lengthy diversion in place if you get as far as Prees Green so depending on whether people are travelling from the extreme North of the county / Cheshire / Market Drayton to Wem it is advisable to plan an alternative route.
The management committee have invited Fred Brazendale, of Newport Bowling Club to be acting chairman of the Barlows league for the remainder if this season. and he has accepted.
Please note that Prees will be playing all their Home games on their small green.

We still do not have a Chairman or Vice Chairman and ask all clubs to consider these positions and nominate someone at the Executive meeting on March 20th.
Following a recent Management the following has been sent out all Club Secretaries:
I have to inform you that Reg Cartlidge has resigned as Chairman and Isobel Jones as Vice Chairman.
It is very important that we have nominations for Chairman and Vice Chairman before the AGM. Please think seriously
about this as the league cannot continue without volunteers. There are only 3 meetings a year and not a lot of work is
