Support for bowls club move
A proposed extension of the Memorial Gardens in Ashford has been supported by the council cabinet.
The £359,000 plan would mean Ashford Town Bowls Club moving to Entrance Park in Kingsnorth, with a new pavilion and bowling green.
The club hopes to boost its membership and offer disabled facilities so the sport can be more accessible for residents.
It has occupied the land at the corner of Vicarage Lane and Church Road since 1908, but the facilities are now not adequate to allow the club to expand its membership base.
Councillors agreed to support the plan to extend the Memorial Gardens and allow the bowls club to build its new home.
