MACCLESFIELD Bowling Club has officially opened its green for 2019 – its 90th anniversary year.
Local MP David Rutley was the special guest and did the honours, rolling the inaugural bowl of the season.
He was joined by bowling veteran Ray Owen, who at 90 years old is the club’s oldest member.
Following the opening of the green, the MP had the opportunity to speak with club members, including its president Sue Munslow.
With a regular programme of activities throughout the year, Macclesfield Bowling Club is always glad to welcome new members, whatever their level of previous experience.
Anyone interested in joining can contact club secretary Jan Gates on 01625 829 327 for further details.
Mr Rutley said: “It was a real pleasure to once again join members of Macclesfield Bowling Club for the start of the 2019 season, in this very special anniversary year.
“As ever, the club remains a great place for people to make friends and take part in a challenging and fun sport. I wish all members continued success throughout this bowling season.”
