It is with regret that I report that John Downham died recently in Arrowe Park hospital after a short, but serious illness.

Unfortunately the Club has to report the passing of 3 of it's Members recently.

Sad news from Liscard Bowling Club
I am very sad to have to report that long time Liscard Club Member, Secretary, Treasurer and Player, Harry Timperley passed away this morning after pnuemonia had set in after his long fight against cancer during the past year. Harry will be sorely missed by his wife Hannah and his daughters as well as the Liscard Club members and the whole Wirral Bowling Community. Harry was very forthright in his opinion of the way bowls should not just be for the Top echelon of bowls but more for the Clubs with limited numbers of Members in their Club. Harry worked long and hard to keep the Liscard Bowling Club in existance and was very proud of the fact that with so few members, the Club finished Second Division Runners Up in the Wallasey season just finished. Our condolences go to Hannah and her Family Members at this sad time.
