LETTER: Bowls Club - Great support and progress

Share this article

The positive support from many of the residents, has shown that the recent comments made by some in the Town Council is based on a lack of knowledge about our sport and how often we work with other organisations behind the scenes to improve the welfare and life experiences of others.

We are accepted as being one of Market Rasen’s Community Groups.

Weather permitting, serious work is expected to commence on the green next week, from the 17th onwards .

A visit from Mike Prestwood of the Dunholme club, a respected specialist in the county in the care of bowling greens, has been of great help and a programme has been provided to return the surface and grass to its former glory within three years.

The total refurbishment of the Clubhouse has had to be put on hold, whilst those who control the funds aimed at restoring Community buildings revisit our application, however urgent remedial measures relating to the plumbing and electrics are on target to be completed by the start of April if most of the costs are covered we have been promised.

The green and it’s facilities are open to any group. A fun day can easily be arranged for you, so whether you are part of a dart’s team, a member of the WI, Town Council, the Lions, Golf club, Royal Mail, a local firm or Medical Centre then please get in touch. We have already heard that the De Aston school is expected to take up our offer during the summer term.
