Established in 1907, the club has a great legacy in Shanklin. With its large outdoor green of 8 Rinks and a clubhouse that has a fully licensed bar and functions rooms the club is fully equipped for many members and visitors to gather.
Nothing gives me great pleasure of becoming your President again.
I would like to Thank and Congratulate Malcolm for his year in office and to you all with raising money for the Ellen McArthur Trust.
We have a wonderful club here in Shanklin and my Father (Bernard) and Brother (Colin) used to bowl here as well, in fact the Colin Ridett Trophy was in honour of my Brother who on passing was County President at the time, this is played each year across the island, with the finals being held here in Shanklin.
Also my father Bernard, his trophy is played for in the SBC Mens Championship singles game.
My chosen charity this year is for the Mountbatten Hospice.
They do a fantastic job here on the Island for end of life care
So if you can, come and support our fundraising throughout next season that would be great.
I look forward to meeting existing members and welcoming new ones on and off the green
With Best Wishes and let’s have a really successful year
Raymond Ridett – President
Mountbatten Isle of Wight provides expert medical, nursing and domiciliary end-of-life care across the Island’s community.
This includes spiritual care, psychological and bereavement support to anyone who has experienced a death – whatever their age and however they have been bereaved, plus art, music and complementary therapies, as part of our wider programme, which encourages people to live well until they die.
On any one day, Mountbatten supports more than 2,000 people who are facing death, dying and bereavement, with the largest part of our work taking place in people’s homes across the Island.
Our Mountbatten Care at Home service is backed up by a 16-bed Inpatient Unit at Mountbatten Hospice in Newport, and a self-help day and rehabilitation service (including a gym) based in the hospice’s John Cheverton Centre.
Our education and training programme aims to improve standards of end-of-life care in health and social care organisations across the Island.
As an independent charity, we must find around £11.5m to run our services every year.
We are indebted to our Island community for continuing to support us, both with fundraising and through volunteering.
