A bowls club has received a donation of £1,000 ahead of its move.

Borehamwood Bowls Club, currently based in Meadow Park, will leave its home of 61 years at the end of the year and move into a new facility in Aberford Park.

A cheque of a thousand pounds has been given by housebuilders McCarthy and Stone, who are behind the new Goldwyn House development in Studio Way.

The money will help go towards new club facilities and it has been welcomed by the bowls club.

Keith Reeve, a member of Borehamwood Bowls Club, said: “Financial assistance is hugely important to us as a club, particularly as, at the end of 2018, we shall be moving to a new artificial bowling facility in Aberford Park.

“At the new site we want to continue playing in tournaments and leagues, and we are very grateful to McCarthy and Stone for its generous donation. As a club that is over 60 years old, we value our place within the Borehamwood community and support from local businesses plays an important part.

“We are looking to establish our club facilities in our new home and donations such as this help towards the costs.”

McCarthy and Stone’s Sales Executive, Stephen Key, added: “As a company, we appreciate our responsibilities go further than building quality retirement apartments, and we also seek to create a positive legacy in the communities in which we build.

“Borehamwood Bowls Club recognises the importance of participating in sporting and social activities, and fostering companionship across the generations, so it was an absolute pleasure to present this donation. The team at McCarthy and Stone’s Goldwyn House development wishes Rob, Keith and the team every success with their ongoing commitment to bringing bowls into the lives of people of all ages.”
