STRAWBERRIES are not just confined to Wimbledon at this time

Gorphwysfa Bowls Club celebrated the opening of the new clubhouse with a special event on Sunday.

The club marked the occasion by hosting a strawberry and prosecco event.

The new clubhouse is adjacent to the public crown bowling green at the Community Centre, on Mwrog Street, in Ruthin.

This new addition will improve the facilities at the green, both from a sporting and social point of view.

Also, it will make the green more obvious to passers-by and it is hoped that the new development will encourage more members of the public to play crown green bowls.

The green is a public facility at the Centre and it is available on a “pay and play” basis for local residents and visitors.

Membership of Gorphwysfa Bowls Club is also available to members of the public, which allows club members to use the green at any time, free of charge.

The bowls club is inviting anybody who is interested to go along and have a go at the sport.

The bowls club is very grateful to the Millennium Stadium Charity Trust, Ruthin Town Council, Ruthin Rotary Club and the mayor’s charity fund for their financial contributions towards the cost of the new clubhouse.
