Bowls club celebrating centenary
A carnival atmosphere is expected at Caldecott Park on Sunday, May 11 as Caldecott Park Bowling Club celebrate their centenary.
Exactly 100 years ago the bowling club was formed with the help of the Rugby Urban Council, with the aim of providing bowls for the ratepayers - and it remains the same today.
The council were the first opponents of the club and this will be repeated next Sunday as they have agreed to provide a team to play against the club. The first jack will be bowled by the mayor, Cllr Tony Gillias at 1pm. It is hoped that many club members willbe dressed in the period clothing of the 1914 era.
The game, however, is only incidental to the entertainment, which will be provided for both adults and children. Target bowls, a bouncy castle, mini roundabout, barbeque and refreshments are among the attractions. ‘The Bowls Locker’ will also be selling bowls and equipment.
The club extends a warm welcome to all members of the public to go along and help them celebrate this momentous occasion, from 12.30pm.
