75th anniversary celebrations

PAGE Park Bowls Club is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year.

To open our celebrations, council leader Toby Savage has agreed to bowl the first bowl in our first game of the year, the Les Fulbrook Trophy Match.

Held each year at the beginning of the season, this game is an in-house charity match and will take place at 2.30pm on Saturday April 8.

We still have some availability on our annual course to train people to play the sport during the spring.

Open to anyone aged 12 years and above, the course will be held at Page Park for seven consecutive Saturdays beginning on April 22, from 10am to noon, under the tuition of five qualified Bowls England coaches. 

All equipment will be provided with the exception of flat soled shoes, which are essential – no heels or ribbed soles please. 

There will be an initial registration fee of £5 and a charge of £5 per session, to cover costs. 

To register your interest, call 07718 306623 or email donwillcox@hotmail.co.uk. 

Applicants will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
