New equipment for bowlers
Old Buckenham Carpet Bowls Club held on open evening in the Village Hall on Tuesday 12 May to celebrate the arrival of two new carpets. The club was able to receive grant money towards their purchase getting £900 from the Old Buckenham 2000 Trust and just under £600 from Breckland Council.
Visitors on the evening were able to try out the sport of carpet bowling and see if it was something that they could take up as an activity in the future.
Their original equipment will not be wasted, one of their old carpets has gone to the Attleborough Adult Training Centre and negotiations are underway for the other one to go to the Snooker Centre where it will be used for older people to play on.
