Bowling to Success!



“The Bowling Green will be reinstated once the housing development at Danesmore Pastures has been completed’’

This was one of the outcomes that came from our most recent (Jan 2019) meeting with City of Wolverhampton Council when your three City Councillors met with Managing Director Tim Johnson in January 2019.

Councillor Rita Potter speaking for the Ward Councillors said ” This is good news as it will help to deliver a better Bowling Club facility, and bowls is a growing sport. We are delighted though that the reinstatement has been confirmed by the Managing Director.”

The Ward Councillors had shown the MD around Wednesfield North in October 2018, just after he had been appointed as the new Managing Director of the City Council.

Jessup the contractors working on the Housing Development at Danesmore Pastures have struck up a good relationship with the Ashmore Park Bowling Club. The Bowling Club lost one of their Greens to the construction. It hasn’t stopped a strong relationship being struck up between the contractors and the Bowling Club, in fact the relationship has been a rather good one. The water tap was lost to bad weather and the supply to the Ashmore Park Bowling club was reinstated by Jessup’s, with support via the City Council.
