Will you help
look after our bowling green?
Crown Green Bowling for the past ten years, and look forward each
Summer to playing in the Abbeyfield Park team. It’s a good
time for me to not only keep fit, but to join with friends and have
some fun. I suppose just like anybody any age, who takes part in
This year however
it cannot be the same. During the winter months young people have
played football on the green and completely destroyed it. I know
what it’s like for young people, I’ve got a grandson
of my own, but we have already given up one of our greens as a football
pitch and there are nets in other areas of the Park.
People have been
bowling in Abbeyfield Park since 1900, it is part of the heritage
of the area and therefore something to be respected and looked after.
The park has agreed
to try to repair the damage, but they cannot be there all the time
making sure no one plays on it.
and residents of Pitsmoor this is why I’m asking for you help.
Can you please
encourage our young people to keep off the bowling green which is
near the Barnsley Road entrance, to give it a chance to regrow.
Can you keep an eye on it, so that bowling can continue in this
area for many more years. Can we be a community who looks
out for each other?
