Farnworth Crown Green Bowling Clubs
Project Category: Informal community group
The project aims to secure and improve the prospects of two Crown Green Bowling Clubs in the deprived area of Farnworth, Bolton. The Clubs are based in Farnworth Central Park and Doe Hey Park. Both Clubs have open age and veterans teams, with age ranges from from 30 to 85, although the majority of players are in their 60s and 70s. Usage and membership of younger players is encouraged and will be a strong focus for each Club in the future. Due to reducing budgets Bolton Metropolitan Borough Council (BMBC) is gradually having to transfer responsibility and costs for running the bowling greens and pavilions to individual clubs. The project therefore focuses on both financial stability and stronger integration within the local community, through better use of the facilities available.
