How much a year does it cost to bowl on this green?

Peters,
Membership covers bowling, the AGM is to be held mid April, when the fees will be set. Contact me then and I will let you know.
Nice photo Tom, taken very recently,as the advertising panels that were there last year have now been removed.

Nice to see it without the adverts shown on P-a-D 30th Nov.2014.

Tom would have his back to the cricket club when taking the photo. The Subs. Club car park is between the 2 clubs.

Mick,
If you are on your bike I'll know you, otherwise just ask for me, there are no others with my Christian name

OK Aubrey

Does the entrance gate still say, 'Abandon hope all ye who enter here'? I remember that from the early 50's when my grandfather Phil Paddock took me in there when he got stuck with child care.

Yes it does.
