Egremont Bowling Green
Egremont Town Council owns the Bowling Green pavilion which sits on Copeland Borough Council’s land for which the Town Council pays an annual rent. The Bowling Green itself, which is available for all the public to use, is managed by the committee of Egremont Town Bowling Club. Last year, thanks to the hard work and commitment of the committee, the green had a total makeover and people can go and sit in the grounds and appreciate the work that has been carried out. It is a great pastime for young and old alike and everyone is more than welcome to visit and have a go.
In 2018 Egremont Town Bowling Green entered the RHS Cumbria in Bloom competition under the category of Visitor Attraction and successfully achieved a Silver Gilt award. As a result of this accomplishment, Egremont Town Council is supporting the committee in this year’s entry by making a donation towards the floral displays and £100 was presented to Mr Alan Hall and Mr Ken Amor by the Town Council Chairperson – Neil Ferguson at the recent Town Council Meeting held on Tuesday 19th March
The Bowling Green is sited on Howbank Road and everyone is more than welcome to pop in & have a chat to any of the committee members, they are a friendly bunch and encourage anyone to call in – even if it is to just sit and watch a match being played.
The opening day of the season will be Saturday 6th April 2019, starting at 1.00pm (weather permitting) so why not take a look at what is right on your doorstep and at the same time, enjoy some gentle exercise
