Try playing bowls

If you have never tried the game of lawn bowls you don’t know what you are missing!

It’s a very sociable game that can be played by all age groups and both sexes.

There are clubs in most towns and villages in the County (there’s a link at the bottom of this page) and if you contact them they will be only too keen to let you have a go.

You won’t regret it!
