We are sad to report the untimely and sudden passing of Tony Shearing. Our thoughts and prayers are with wife Christine, devoted to each other, sons David and Gary and grandson Jack.

Tony joined Bath Bowling Club in 1974 and was subsequently made a life member and trustee – and often known as “Mr Bath Bowling Club”.  A competitive bowler for Somerset during its very successful period in the 80s his greatest achievement was part of the winning national double rink Bath team of 1994. Tony was also a playing member of the Barbarians Bowling Association for many years. Perhaps a better reflection of Tony’s standing in the bowls world within Somerset and much further afield was the number of people both he and Christine know from a long and successful playing career.

Tony’s funeral will be on Monday 1st July, 12:30 at Haycombe Upper Chapel.
