One Club, One Team
This club is run by volunteers who are passionate about the club and love lawn bowls, without them there would not be a club!

This could include, selling raffle tickets on Charity Days, helping with the green, doing a bit of cleaning, serving behind the bar, or if you’d like to be involved in decision making at your club you could take on a role and join our committee.

We have a member’s WhatsApp group which is for day-to-day information regarding the green and club nights, if you would like to be added please let us know. The club produces a monthly newsletter which is sent to all members by email.
New members can wear a plain white top/black trousers or black knee length shorts and flat-bottomed shoes. However, all members will be required to wear a club shirt during SDL/MDL/County matches. Ideally, we would prefer all members to have a club shirt.
