Work completed on the “splendid” bowling green, Woolton Hill


The Woolton Hill pétanque ground is now operational.

East Woodhay Parish Council built a 12m by 9m yard, surrounded by a wooden fence, at the back of the recreation grounds after receiving s106 contributions from Bloor Homes following the development of 60 houses in Meadowbrook in the village.

The court surface is made of a material suitable for boules competitions and usable in all weathers.

Vice-president of the board, Paul Hurst, encouraged all parishioners to brave the cold and get out and start using it.

He said: “We are delighted with the end result.

“The contractors did a wonderful job – it looks good, it’s in the right place and it handled the drainage challenges.

“We have now communicated that it is ready to be used and we have invited people to go out and buy their boules and we have started to circulate the rules of the boules.

“We’re telling people to go out there and start using it.”

The council now plans to add benches and a ping-pong table to the recreation area, as well as more gym equipment.

It will be a “full body” multi-gym, consisting of a leg press, cross trainer, side / shoulder press and pull-up bar.
