Bowls England comes to Porthleven

Fifty years ago, a number of ladies from Porthleven Bowling Club affiliated to the County Bowling Association and began competitive bowling.

Since then the club has strengthened and grown into a comparatively small but friendly and competitive club, playing a full part in group and county bowls. It has produced three County Presidents, many county bowlers and one national championship team.

To celebrate this anniversary, Bowls England President, Viv Tomlinson, brought an England team to Porthleven, where they enjoyed a buffet lunch, a match and an evening meal, a day enjoyed by all.
