Our Bowls Big Weekend events started slowly on Friday evening and Saturday afternoon but attracted a few locals and several enquiries and lots of family visitors, young and old, on Sunday afternoon. After playing golf bowls and a ‘proper’ game participants enjoyed an ice cream or chocolate. Monday afternoon was also well attended by visitors who enjoyed playing followed by cake and prosecco. If you missed the event but are interested, please get in touch anytime.
The playing membership subscription is now £45 inclusive and social membership £15. Visitor roll up green fees are £3.50 per 2-hour session. Sessions are available morning, afternoon and evening every day of the week from now until late September.
