A few days ago Mrs Jessica Fisher (the great, great granddaughter of the late Councillor WG Lloyd, former Mayor of the town) and family who were on holiday in the area from Devon, paid a visit to Pembroke Dock Bowling Club.

Councillor Lloyd was the Mayor of Pembroke Dock in 1925 and it was he that rolled the Silver Jack to formally open the bowling green.

Jessica and family were shown around the club by Ken Edwards and viewed numerous photographs and were especially interested in seeing the famous Silver Jack.

After the visit Jessica said: “I had no idea visiting the area that I’d learn so much history about my family that I honestly never knew existed.”

As season’s go, Pembroke Dock Bowling Club has certainly had one to forget with triumphs being few and far between with just three wins all season.

On Wednesday evening Haverfordwest were the visitors to the Memorial Park.

On an overcast evening the gathering gloom deepened as The Dock succumbed to a 64 - 85 shots defeat.

The solitary two points were won by the rink skipped by James John-Davies with Brent Davies, Hugh Colley and Ken Edwards all playing their part.

On Saturday, Pembroke Dock made the trip to the seaside to take on Tenby – the current league leaders.

As Tenby were minus a number of stalwarts there was optimism among the team that the journey home would be a happy one.

Sadly, the optimism was misguided as Tenby ran out winners by 97 shots to 63 with the quartet skipped by Richard Jones being the only successful rink.
