Can you help them to be flushed with sucess !


Members outside the club pavilion

Following the recent closure of the Centurion Pub, members of the Gamesley Bowling Club have found themselves short of a much needed facility.

That facility being access to nearby toilets for teams and members playing at the club, and with the cost’s for developing a permanent facility on the site of the bowling green being very high, the club are on the look out for anyone that can help them with a temporary solution to the problem, to prevent the loss of teams currently playing on the green.

If you can help, please get in touch and we will pass you’re details on to the club.
