Gorefield Bowls Club in Wisbech not only has a nice clean green but also brighter communal areas after staff from the Nottingham Building Society (known as The Nottingham) helped them spruce up their facilities.

The Nottingham’s Wisbech branch manager David Boyce and members of his team helped club members tidy and paint their Wolf Lane venue over a two day period.

It’s not the first time the Society has helped out as it recently sponsored the club – with funds which they used to build a small spectator stand.

David said: “Our community is at the heart of everything we do here at The Nottingham, whether that is helping someone buy their next home or contributing to projects and initiatives where they live.

“Gorefield Bowls Club also do lots for the community – last year alone they raised £1,800 for local causes. So it was a no-brainer to offer them some help to make their communal spaces nice for members old and new.”

Chairperson of the club, Margaret Hunt, added: “It’s been mutually beneficial having The Nottingham sponsor us this year, but for them to come along and help with the painting too was a big bonus and really appreciated.”

The bowling club welcomes new members and is holding their AGM at Gorefield Bowls Club, Wolf Lane, Gorefield, PE13 4PG, at 10am on February 6.
