As some in the neighbourhood will know, the Clapham Common Bowling Green is due for closure. A fifty-years plus heritage of surbaban-charachter
of Common Westside no less.
As a Committee member of Clapham Common Management Advisory Committee - CCMAC, I undertook to pushback against alternative commercial development
of the two green-bowling pitches (under the bull of austerity!).
A SINGLE re-development proposal has been submitted to turn the landmark characteristic pavillion clubhouse into NEW cafe with alchol-license and the bowling-greens into mini-golf or crazy golf putting!
As pushback campaign I have to submit palns / interest to maintain and use ONE of the bowling-greens. Instead of mounting full-on campaign which would be arduous as I already work on the adjoing tennis courts as the local tennis coach, I am seeking interest of support for the re-instatemnent of a SINGLE bowling-green
. Not oblivious of golf-putting enthusiasts or commerce, I suggest side-carting with the current proposal.
In this valuable local social-network thread of NappyValley please put your name and email adress to indicate signing-up for the Clapham Common Bowling Green League 2020
, or indeed that you will support its existence and use - all ages sexes welcome.
I personally assure YOU that this game is competitive and skilful
, I played when I was younger age 8+ and wish to do so again as I am older, given good bowling green where the bowl actually turns in paraboa curves.
What are you waiting for?
