Roll up for new season

Wooler Bowling Club

A NORTH Northumberland bowling club starts its new season this week.

Wooler Bowling Club’s president Jim Porteous is pleased to announce that the green will be officially opened on Saturday.

Officers will attend from around 1pm to receive the annual subscriptions from new and renewing members and to receive last-minute deliveries of raffle tickets.

Lily Stevenson, who was appointed an honorary member in 2010, will deliver the first bowl of the 2011 season at 2pm.

Following the afternoon’s bowling, there will be the usual pooled tea, after which the annual prize draw will be made and 20 or so prizes distributed.

The green will then be open daily, subject to weather, fixtures and green maintenance, until about mid-September.
