A HEREFORDSHIRE bowling club is in good health as the new season approaches, adding members and better facilities - with the generous assistance of Severn Trent.

Members of Brimfield and Little Hereford Bowling Club are celebrating the near completion of a new disabled toilet, achieved with the help of a £3,000 grant from the water company.

Club volunteers, under the guidance of local builder Dave Cole, have been hard at work protecting the club and green from floods along with carrying out general painting and decorating work at the Haynall Lane location.

A new kitchen area has been added in the snug with a refreshment hatch overlooking the green

One of the main objectives was improving the loos - and Severn Trent was more than happy to consider an application prepared by club chairman, Jennie Cole.

“The existing toilet is in a precarious and dilapidated state and the timing was perfect to relocate the toilet and provide a new purpose built building,” Jennie said.

“Club members have all worked extremely hard and we are in great shape for the opening of our green in April, with all the relevant Covid-19 restrictions in place."

One of the club’s main aims is to promote wellbeing through a healthier lifestyle and it has a proud record of welcoming people of all ages interested in the sociable world of bowling.

Attention now turns to to a clean up day on April 1, committee members turning out to ensure the green and surrounds look their best for Brimfield’s official opening on Saturday, April 17, at 2pm.
