ANDOVER Bowling Club opened its doors over the Bank Holiday Weekend for a public open day.

The bowling green, situated at Vigo Road recreational ground, welcomed those interested in bowls young and old to try their hand at the famous old game.

President David Hamilton said: “It went really well and I think it was the best response we have had for a quite a few years.

“A good number of people turned up, they were a little frightened to come onto the green at first but were getting involved soon enough.

“We were certainly helped by the beautiful weather and it was great to get some new members on the day and even more are coming back to play again.”
