The club, which has some of the best bowling facilities in the area, welcomes new members and offers free tuition and use of equipment for those wanting to experience the sport for the first time.

Club secretary Melvyn Beck said: “Bowls is regarded as the ‘Sport for All,’ one that all the family can enjoy, whatever their ages.
