Weobley and District Bowling Club launch their 70th Anniversary season with a friendly game at Ledbury on Thursday 20th April.
The club was formed in 1947 for villagers who had returned from the Second World War at the Red Lion, before moving to their new green on Hereford Road in 2009.
"We have been successful in attracting several people who want to take up bowling, and will join the club under our policy of free membership for the first season following the story in the Hereford Times and The Magpie" said secretary Jean Bufton.
"The scheme is still open to anyone who wishes to take up the sport. Those interested in taking up bowls are invited to come along to our Friday club night throughout the season, starting on Friday 21st April at 6 pm."
Weobley has a full fixture list of over fifty matches, including a visit of Friends of Bowls England who will celebrate the 70th Anniversary with members on the 13th September.
The next meeting will be held on Tuesday 28th March at 7.30pm in the Village Hall.
