Grants and Sponsorships

We are extremely grateful for grant funding that we have received towards the substantial cost of our re-development work in 2020/21. This followed the extension of our lease to include the adjacent redundant bowls club. We extended the irrigation from our own borehole, removed ditches and completely re-laid the bowling greens creating 4½ croquet courts.  We have created a level access and a multi-use space in the West pavilion and improved the layout and facilities in our existing East pavilion.

In total over £100,000 has been invested, some of it from funds that we had been putting aside for such a day, some from generous support from our own members, some from a very successful crowd-funding campaign and some from the following organisations who have provided grant funding.
