PENINSULA BOWLS CLUB CELEBRATES NEW HOME THANKS TO NATIONAL HOUSEBUILDER
Peninsula Bowls Club in Kent is celebrating the grand opening of its new home which has been built and paid for by housebuilder Bellway in Hoo St Werburgh.
The new clubhouse pavilion is located off Bell’s Lane, opposite Bellway’s Nightingale Rise development, and was officially unveiled by club chairman Dave Moore and Bellway Kent Managing Director Chris Moore in front of many of the club’s members and guests on Thursday 18th April.
Peninsula Bowls Club invited its members for the grand opening to see the official ribbon cutting ceremony outside the new clubhouse pavilion, and to enjoy canapes and refreshments provided for by Bellway.
Dave Moore, Chairman of Peninsula Bowls Club, said: “What a wonderful occasion it was to officially open our new home alongside many of our members and guests last week.
“The day couldn’t have turned out any better. The new clubhouse looks marvellous, the sun was shining down on us and I think everybody had a great time exploring the new premises while enjoying some light refreshments and good company.
“Once more, I would like to thank Bellway on behalf of everyone at Peninsula Bowls Club for their hard work in completing this project and providing this fantastic new pavilion for us to look after for generations.”
Bellway is building a collection of one to four-bedroom homes at its Nightingale Rise development off Bell’s Lane and had vowed to deliver a brand-new clubhouse for the bowls club since it purchased the adjacent piece of land in Hoo in 2016.
Managing Director of Bellway Kent, Chris Moore, said: “We were overwhelmed by the turnout last week for the grand opening of the club’s new home, which has been years in the making. I believe it was well worth the wait given the vast amount of positive feedback we have received about the new building.
“A special thank you goes to all our contractors, sub-contractors and the planning team who have put so many hours into this project and have worked tirelessly to ensure everything about the new facility is right, and delivered on time for the club to start their new season in their new home.
“We hope that this will encourage even more members to visit the club and try their hand at bowls, and that the clubhouse will take pride of place in Hoo for many years to come.”
