Thumbs up for Peacehaven and Telscombe Bowls Club funding

Peacehaven MP Simon Kirby welcomed news this week that Peacehaven and Telscombe Cliffs Bowls Club had been awarded a grant of £27,573 from Sport England.

The grant will allow the club to extend its pavilion, improve its facilities, and enable bowls to be played throughout the year.

The club applied for the money in December 2013 and the MP lobbied in support of the application on their behalf.

Simon said: “Bowls clubs are often at the heart of local communities, and the Peacehaven and Telscombe Cliffs Bowls Club is no different.

“Today’s announcement is great news and I am pleased that they will be receiving this funding to improve their facilities, and maintain year round use of the club.

“I look forward to visiting after the improvements have been completed.”
