The Club was founded in 1946, the founder members laying their own green.   No records for the years 1946 - 1975 exist, so the number of members and rate of subscriptions during those years is unknown, however the records do show that in 1976 the subscriptions were £2 per member, a further 20 years later they had been raised to £20-00 per member {reduced for members receiving a state pension}.   In the early day, in order to become a member of the bowling club, men had to be an employee of the High Duty Alloys Company. {Ladies usually got involved in catering} This is no longer the case, High Duty Alloys is now a fully mixed member Club welcoming ladies as well as gentlemen bowlers of all ages.   In the late 1980’s, the local British Aluminium Club was disbanded due to the closure of the bowling facilities and many of the members joined the Club and some still remain.   Our longest serving member to date is Barry Hay, who until recently worked at High Duty Alloys, Barry has enjoyed many Club competitions successes as well as County competition successes. The Club’s most senior member to date is George Williams who is 89 years young and has been a member for over 20 years. George also has had many Club and County competition successes.   The Club has had many County Competition successes in the past 59 years, the first of which was in our foundation year, winning the County Fours Competition.
