Sadly, the Bowls Club has informed the Trust it will not be renewing the ground lease this Autumn.
The area has been occupied by the Bowls Club for over sixty years and marks the end of an era in the Village. The Trust has been considering the best alternative use for the site.
The prefabricated Clubhouse is constructed from low grade asbestos sheeting and facilities are in need of renovation to bring up to modern standards. The Trust does not have the funds to do this and neither does the Bowls Club have resources to remove all buildings from the site and reinstate ground as required by the terms of the lease. The Bowling Green is situated on a large mound which further restricts use of the site such as extension of the car park.
