HAVERTHWAITE and Leven Valley Bowling Club is looking forward to some new members after a successful open day on Saturday, the first to be held by the club.

South Lakes MP Tim Farron and his children were among the 40 people who took to the green at Haverthwaite to try out the sport, some for the first time.

Committee member Pat Appleton said: “It was a beautiful afternoon and we got a good mix of ages. We needed to let people know that the club is here and the idea was to get a few more members, which I feel sure we will.”
