Bowls club in Tiverton gets new indoor green
2:00pm Wednesday 23rd October 2013 in Devon
MEMBERS of Mid Devon Indoor Bowls Club in Tiverton have celebrated the opening of their new playing surface.
MP Neil Parish cut the ribbon at the club in Amory Park and had the first bowl on what is now one of the best indoor greens in the country.
He said: “This is a wonderful facility with a very warm and welcoming feel – and I’m delighted to have had the opportunity to perform the opening ceremony.”
Year seven students from Tiverton High School went along and had the chance to play bowls with England national bowlers.
Tiverton Mayor Janet Rendle and Cllr Neal Davey also attended.
The new playing surface was made possible thanks to a grant from the Sport England Inspired Facilities programme, which aims to build on the legacy of the 2012 London Olympics by encouraging more participation in sport.
The club is open to new members between 9am and 1pm every day.
