Leamington Hastings

Leamington Hastings Bowling Club have welcomed several new members over the summer and thank them for playing during the outdoor season.

The club hopes they - and anyone else interested - will go along to Leamington Hastings Parish Hall on Wednesday evenings at 7pm. Flat shoes and comfortable clothing required.

Of the 16 matches played this summer the club won nine and drew one, enjoying some good weather, good exercise and good company.

They held several events through the season to raise funds for charity and the club which all were well attended. The Lyle Watts Day raised £400 in aid of Myton Hospice. The last outdoor match was Ladies v Gents followed by a fish and chip supper.
