KINGSLAND Bowling Club celebrated its 40th anniversary on their current green recently with members playing for the Anniversary Cup.

The winners in a closely-fought final were Terry Smith, Malcolm Morgan and Kevin Morgan.

Kingsland Bowling Club was formed originally in October 1976 when 14 enthusiasts agreed to seek out a suitable site in the village for a bowling green.

The club then celebrated the opening of its first bowling green in May 1980. The combination of a clear strategic vision and members’ determination to develop the club, resulted in the provision of a first-class green and a superb purpose-built Clubhouse.

These facilities were opened officially in June 1996. The groundsman’s store was completed just over a year later. By this time the club had grown to a total of 140 members, including 57 social members. As a result of the efforts that have been made over the years, current members can now enjoy competing in a full fixture list of matches with other clubs, playing in a variety of internal club competitions, or simply having a casual “roll-up”.

The club continues its proud tradition of producing bowlers who perform both at county and national level. It hosts area tournaments and welcomes visiting tourist teams.

Whilst complying with the Government's Covid-19 guidelines, they are still be welcoming new members.

Members recently competed for the Joe Ward Trophy when Rob Parker-Morgan and Viv Webb ran out victors, runners-up were David Perkins and Peter Moore,
