Picture 1 Picture 2

Over the years the Stalham has invited a series of leading speakers in the agricultural industry to address members. Although meetings were suspended from around 1916 to 1919 and again in the Second World War, the club’s long-term success has been helped by the loyalty of succeeding generations of members and officers.

There have only been eight presidents since the club was formed in December 1841 and some 15 secretaries during the same period.

In 2014 – it stands at 10 presidents and 16 secretaries.

Congratulations – Stalham’s lack of support in the bowls gave a walk-over to Holt & District Farmers’ Club. Joint organiser Stuart Ross presented the trophy to Matt Skinner on behalf of the successful bowlers at Rossi’s Leisure, North Walsham, on Friday night. Stalham's trio, Ken Leggett, Mike Mansfield and the secretary, Michael Pollitt, did manage to get points on the board. In the 10-pin, Stalham’s John Lockhart stormed to victory with a first round score of 182, adding 101 in the second leg. Holt’s top two, Alistair Wagg and Roger Buxton were joint runners-up on 245. Henry Alston, chairman, thanked the staff at Rossi’s for a great evening and everyone for taking part. Sadly, Stalham fielded a total of just eight against Holt’s 28 players. [08/02/20]
Fancy a new club challenge - With the end of the shooting season, Stalham’s chairman Henry Alston is looking ahead to this Friday’s annual bowls/10-pin competition. Holt will be fielding two teams of almost 30, so please step up to the plate in either bowls or 10-pin. It takes place at Rossi’s on Friday, February 7 (4pm for 4.3pm prompt start) and a three-course supper would be greatly appreciated. Skill is not absolutely necessary. The whole evening costs £25. Please let the secretary know and if you’d like to bring a friend/ colleague or partner, so much the merrier. [03/02/20]
