Peninsula Bowls Club was paid for by the firm that created its new clubhouse pavilion close to its housing scheme off Bell’s Lane.

Bellway invested more than £350,000 to pay for project costs to design and build the bowls club, and provided a new 29-space car park for members.

Club chairman Dave Moore said: “I would like to thank Bellway on behalf of everyone at Peninsula Bowls Club for their hard work in completing this project and providing this fantastic new pavilion for us to look after for generations.”

Bellway is building one to four-bedroom homes at its Nightingale Rise development and had promised to create a new clubhouse for the bowls club since it purchased the adjacent piece of land in 2016.

Managing director of Bellway Kent, Chris Moore, said: “A special thank you goes to all our contractors, sub-contractors and the planning team who have put so many hours into this project and have worked tirelessly to ensure everything about the new facility is right, and delivered on time for the club to start their new season in their new home.

“We hope that this will encourage even more members to visit the club and try their hand at bowls, and that the clubhouse will take pride of place in Hoo for many years to come.”
