WHITEFIELD Bowling Club is offering anyone over the age of 55 the chance to try out crown green bowling for free at its Stand Lane base.

The club is holding open days next month to encourage people to take up the sport in the surroundings of Whitefield’s hidden gem on Church Lane.

Club members will be on hand on each Monday and Thursday in the first two weeks in April between 1pm and 4.30pm to guide and assist.

Bowls will be provided and tuition will also be available for free.

The clubhouse bar will be open for refreshments at each session and more information is available from John on 07858 369710.
