Local MP Luke Hall visited the Olveston Bowls Club and was bowled over by the club’s community spirit and resilience throughout the covid-19 pandemic.
Mr Hall met with the President of the Club, Trevor Graham, Vice Chairman Bob Phillips and Ian Barton who is one of the club’s trustees to view the grounds and pavilion.
Olveston Bowls Club has been around for over 80 years, with a membership of over 150 people, producing bowlers who perform at the very top level.
With the Bowls leagues back up and running, many local residents have welcomed the return of their valued local club as it has reopened its doors following a turbulent period.
Luke Hall said: “Olveston Bowls Club is a fantastic club, which has showed incredible resilience throughout the covid-19 pandemic, adapting to the covid-regulations.
"Our rural sports clubs and teams are greatly valued and vital to the local community, and I am delighted that Olveston and the surrounding villages can return to the green once more."
