alling weather over the winter.
President Christine King said: “We are looking forward to a happy and good season and are grateful as ever to Douch & Small for sponsoring us.
“We’re always looking for new players, young or old, to join our friendly club.”
Nick Douch said: “With both Douch & Small and the bowls club having been in the town for over 100 years, the sponsorship is a perfect fit.
“It is a thriving club and we are delighted to be associated with it. Hopefully we’ll have a good summer of weather and we wish the players all the best for the season.”
