During the Big Bowls weekend, we had the pleasure of introducing five passers-by to the game, and we eagerly anticipate their participation in our Thursday evening sessions.
Excitingly, we have announced our first social partnership with Burford House Care Home, which has contributed funds to the club for new equipment. Stay tuned for updates on their sponsored morning date.
