Ramsey Bowls Club
Any mobility concerns that have been voiced by both members and visitors at Ramsey Bowls Club have been eradicated courtesy of financial support provided by local construction Company Mick George Ltd.
The previously uneven walkway that provides the main access to the playing surface has in recent years deteriorated to a state that has caused serious health and safety worries, prompting the Clubs’ committee to take action.
The £7,620 grant has permitted a new footpath to be installed on the northern side of the Bowls Green, which has seen the existing structure completely excavated and re-laid with reinforced steels finished in concrete with a brush finish and bull-nose edging acting as a gravel retainer, bordering the turfed playing area.
Ramsey Bowls Club now has more than 80 individual members, consisting of both male and female players of all ages. As well offering social play, the Club’ competes in the over-60’s league and friendly competitions, as well as County and National tournaments.
Those who utilise the facilities are sure to benefit when they return for the new season that is scheduled for 1st April, 2019.
Peter Levi, President of Ramsey Bowls Club said: ‘’As our membership consists of some senior players, it was imperative that we suitably address any issues with the footpath that caused any apprehensions. With the help of Mick George Ltd we have rectified the problem and in doing so, have produced nicer surroundings for those watching or participating in lawn bowls.’’
Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’As the winter months set in, the condition of the footpath is only likely to worsen with the adverse weather conditions that we usually experience. It’s good to see that the Club’ has managed to complete any maintenance works ahead of the new season, although I’m sure the walkway will prove beneficial for years to come.’’
