The 2014 outdoor bowling season will be the last for Kingarth Bowling Club.

The new outdoor season at Kingarth Bowling Club will get under way next weekend - but the 2014 summer will be the last before the club is wound up.

The new Gloria Fear from the club told The Buteman: “There are only a few of us left now, and we’re not getting any younger, so this will be the club’s last season.

“The green belongs to Kingarth Hotel anyway so it will revert to them when we’re no longer around.”

The club’s final outdoor season will officially begin when the first jack and bowls are thrown at 2pm on Saturday, April 19; the remaining members also hope to hold a farewell event later in the year.
