Club seeks new blood

A bowls club is hoping to secure its future by seeking out new members.

Whitworth Park Bowls Club has a shortage of young blood.

Club chairman Terry Boswell said: “With a shortage of younger players, the club consists in the main of senior citizens and one 13-year-old player.

“Anyone who might wish to take up bowling as a new hobby or pastime will be particularly welcome to come and have a go.”

The club is also holding a coffee morning to help raise money to pay for the cost of the mowing and maintenance of its green.

The coffee morning is being held on Saturday, May 14, at Dale Road Methodist Church Hall, from 10am to noon.

Anyone interested in joining the club can contact Terry Boswell on 734292.
