A study in concentration
The Freshfield Crown green Bowling Club was established in 1894 and is known locally as ‘Tin Tabs’. This is because the clubhouse is an old Tin Tabernacle Church. This was it is believed, on the site of the present United Reform Church and the bowling club acquired it when it was no longer needed.
The event has caught the imagination of local players from and around Formby and is likely to be popular. Residents of Formby are welcome to attend the game. If you want to know more about the sport contact the Freshfield Bowling Club in Timms Lane, Freshfield.
