Greens Closed

With the continuing heavy rain and with bowlers welfare in mind both greens are now closed for the day (Wednesday 17th May). This means that both the Four Rink League match against Trowbridge Westbourne and the Norwest League Match against North Wilts Red Devils have been postponed. Hopefully, weather permitting, the Top Green will be open tomorrow.
