Oakley Bowling Club have announced a successful grant application of £773.95 from the Four Lanes Trust.

The club said the grant has been used to purchase a new, larger fridge freezer for the club's pavilion, significantly increasing their capacity for food and beverage service.

The improved catering options directly contribute to the club's mission of providing not just sporting facilities, but also a welcoming social space for the community.

As a self-funded organisation, Oakley Bowling Club actively seek grants and fundraising opportunities to enhance their facilities while maintaining affordable membership fees.

To celebrate the new addition and introduce the community to the sport of bowls, Oakley Bowling Club are also hosting an open day on Saturday, April 27, from 10am to 4pm.

The free event is open to everyone and offers a chance to tour the facilities and try your hand at bowling.

Founded in 1974, the Four Lanes Trust supports initiatives that enrich the lives of residents in Basingstoke and Deane through education, arts, and community projects.

The trust awards grants to local groups whose work aligns with their mission of enhancing the community.
