Bowled over by new club facilities
HILLINGDON Council has invested more than £500,000 to rebuild the facilities used by three bowls clubs.
Deane Park Bowls Club, Bessingby Park Bowls Club and Cowley Bowls Club, will all benefit and Hayes Bowls Club will receive a new car park.
Cllr Ray Puddifoot, Leader of Hillingdon Council and Older People’s Champion, said: “Hillingdon Council is committed to assisting residents of all ages in developing an active and healthy lifestyle. Our bowls clubs are part of this as they provide a facility for exercise while also offering an excellent opportunity for socialising.”
New facilities for Cowley Bowls Club were officially opened at the end of March and in late February, Bessingby Park and Deane Park Bowls Clubs also opened their new club house.
The new buildings have kitchen facilities, changing rooms and lockers, as well as space for short mat bowls to be played indoors during winter, allowing club members to participate all year round.
Hillingdon Council has also set aside a further £900,000 in this financial year to rebuild or refurbish bowls club facilities in other parts of the borough.
