New Stand Extension @ North Road

The bowls season might be over but the hard work of some of the members continues. Frank Hazelwood along with other members Trevor and Mike have built a fantastic new extension to the stand at the bowling green. The new stand will be an invaluable facility for bowlers and spectators to shelter under and watch the matches.

Glossop Bowling Club Saturday team beat Etherow 12 points to 4 in the last game of the season in the Longendale League. They had six winners and managed to win the aggregate. It was a very rainy day.
