Chantry Bowls Club are looking for new members, experienced or beginners, to join them for the 2017 season.

The green is located near the Sue Ryder Nursing Home on Chantry Park and is a most idyllic setting for a most relaxing interest.

The club has a rich history, dating back to the latter months of the Second World War.

Then, the local air-raid wardens called ‘G’ group sought permission from the Ipswich Borough Parks Department to use a lawn in Chantry Park for a bowling green.

Permission was granted and the lawn was upgraded to play bowls on, at the same site as it is to this day. After the war finished the wardens decided to carry on and the club was formed.
