The weather may not have been great recently – okay, so that’s a bit of an understatement! – but that’s no reason not to get out and about.

That’s the view of Falcon Bowling Club, the “hidden gem” in the heart of Gloucestershire.

“We are always looking for new recruits, especially from the local community,” said a club spokesman.

“Falcon Bowling Club are without a doubt Painswick’s hidden gem, so why not come and check us out?

“We have an idyllic setting behind The Falcon Inn and you’ll receive a very warm welcome. Playing bowls is a great way to stay active longer, so why not have a go?

“At Falcon throughout the summer we have ‘Bowl Free Friday’ where non-members can join in our club afternoon and try bowls for free.

“All ages, and abilities are welcome. All you need is flat footwear. We start at 2pm and go through till about 4pm.”

Falcon Bowling Club’s free taster sessions are being supported by Age UK Gloucestershire.

“It’s a beautiful venue steeped in history and Jon Ellis will make sure you have a great afternoon,” said Chris Walker, Volunteering and Partnerships Manager for Age UK Gloucestershire

“I’m looking at setting up a few team sessions between partner organisations, so if anyone is interested please let me know.”
