Bowls Club

Contact: Richard Davies tel:01544 267508

Meets Thursdays from September 7.30pm onwards (apart from away games) until lambing time.  The Lingen Bowls Team is back on its quest to win the cup and more importantly, enjoy the season so join them at the hall.  All are very welcome and an enjoyable evening is normally had by all. 

About - The official opening of the Bowls evenings at Lingen was held on November 18th 1989, one year after the new hall was opened (July 1988). The Border Group Parish Council was invited along as they had managed the financial affairs of the new build of the hall and John Miles (BGPC Chairman) bowled the first wood of the night. 

The bowls equipment was purchased with aid of a grant from 'Carnegie Trust' therefore enabling them to set up a league with Aymestrey, Brienton, Shobdon, Titley, & Wigmore for inter club competition. In 06/07 Lingen were the champions of the North Hereford Carpet Bowls and in 2015/15 Indoor League Winners. 

The team meet at the village hall on Thursday evenings during the winter months - bowls is very much a game for either sex and for all ages - any new experienced or inexperienced folk would be most welcome. Just turn up at the hall 7.30pm on a Thursday - it would be best to ring Richard Davies (above number) before setting out to check they are playing at Lingen and not elsewhere. An inexpensive and fun evening.
