Bowled over by new club fa­cil­i­ties

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

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.
