2019 will bring to an end, after 110 years, the name Barry Central.
With the Vale Council relinquishing its control of council bowling greens in the area, moves are afoot to maintain the game of bowls from 2020 onward.
To that end a great deal of work has been undertaken by the council to upgrade the facilities at Gladstone Gardens prior to the club taking control.
Special mention must be made of the council ground force, especially Mike, the club green keeper, for bringing the playing green up to first class standards, compared with that of last season.
During the winter season members from the club have been very active. Beside the ladies having short mat practices/matches at the club house, numerous members have also been active at the Sully Indoor Bowling Arena.
The men had a good season in their Monday League matches. There were also two club groups, one male and one mixed, that regularly played during each week of the indoor season. Other members played within teams in other league competitions.
The men held its first meeting at the clubhouse on Friday, March 29, where there was a very good turn out. Much discussion took place dealing with the future plans for the club.
The ladies section will hold its meeting early in April. It is very much hoped to introduce various social events during the coming season.
The ladies have organised a charity coffee morning at the clubhouse on Saturday, April 13, 10.30am-12noon.
The club itself will open on Saturday, April 20 at 2pm. Any person, male or female, interested in exploring membership at the club is very welcomed to attend on either Saturday.
