Jenny, Eileen, Kath the Chef put in a lot of work and we are very grateful to them. There was many raffle prizes which earned the bowls club a tidy sum of money.

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.
