taking place in the 1930's . The  current green was relayed in the early 1950s and is now looked 

after by Mark Hammond. It is without doubt considered to be one of the best playing surfaces in 

the area. Blackstones Bowls Club is a section of the Blackstones Sports and Social Club

which also provides football, netball and the usual pub games to its members. It holds 

entertainment nights and bingo in the clubhouse. The Bowls Club has 60 playing members and
