Sessions are real success

Taster sessions overseen by Matlock Park Bowls Club and Derbyshire Dales District Council in the town’s Hall Leys Park have proved successful and resulted in several new members joining the club.

However, organisers have decided to cancel the session that was due this Friday (May 27), in view of the numbers expected to be away for the bank holiday.

Matlock Park Bowls Club will continue to welcome all those interested in bowling.

Friday afternoons will generally see several members on the green and they would be quite happy to introduce newcomers to the sport.

Future visitors will need to have a season ticket or buy a green ticket but bowls will be provided.
