A VILLAGE bowling club that was founded over a century ago is appealing for new members.

Twyford Bowls Club who place a large emphasis on the social and friendly side of bowls, is staging an open day on Sunday May 11, between 10.30 and 3.30 and would welcome ladies, gentlemen and young people of any age to try bowls without any obligation.

Complete beginners and lapsed experienced players will be welcome.

Coaching can be provided.

The club, noted for its friendly atmosphere, has a full list of friendly fixtures and has regular club roll-ups.

Bowling provides excellent exercise and very good fellowship.  Contact can be made with Eileen Tunstall on 02380 614610.
