PETITION

Many local councils are planning to withdraw funding to maintain bowling greens. This action will have a knock on effect on less mobile, less fit elderly people and could result in the closure of many clubs. The link to the petition is: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/181835.

GRIFFIN BC

Griffin Bowls Club would like to announce that it is very much alive and kicking. This rumour came about from an injunction taken out by the Council against unauthorised traveller encampments around the town, copies of which were posted all over Harlow town, on properties including the gates of our Club.

We hope that this will clarify the situation.
