We are delighted that the East Midlands Airport Community Fund has provided us with a substantial grant to enable the purchase some 16 items of gardening equipment. These items replace equipment some of which were over 50 years old and in a poor condition. The new equipment will enable our gardening team to maintain the bowling green and surrounding gardens in pristine condition for the foreseeable future - for the benefit of members and people from the local community who come to visit us.

The Open Competition which ran for 5 evenings was an outstanding success - under our new LED floodlights, as supplied by Kingfisher Lighting.
Tremendous thanks to Craig and Ed for organising the event (no doubt a very time-consuming exercise) - and to all the other people who contributed by
preparing the green, marking, measuring, preparing food and drinks in the kitchen, selling the football blackout, running the bar - and coming along to watch and support the club. Well done everyone.

Just a short note of thanks to the many members who turned out for the formal opening of the green and competition on Sunday 24 March 2024.
Over the last few weeks our team of 'Lawn Rangers' have been using the professional powered sprayer that was acquired with a generous grant from Sport England in September 2023. This piece of equipment has been instrumental in enabling the gardening team to better apply appropriate chemicals to combat moss and other diseases - that were prevalent over the winter months. The bowling green is now in excellent condition.
