Sup­port for bowls club move

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - News -

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.
