On Saturday 30th October 2021 we'll once again be taking Crown Green Bowls for refurbishment, repair, relacquering, testing and Jacks for testing and stamping to Premier Bowls in Stockport. Click below to find out more...
You may have seen our message recently advising that we were closing the shop early as we were going to see a lady about some bowls...
The bowls were those belonging to Noreen Bradley who sadly and unexpectedly passed away on 28th February 2021 aged 86 years. Noreen was a keen bowler in her time (in 1983 she lost in the ladies final of the Waterloo to Mary Farmer), she was well known in Crown Green Bowling circles and was a good friend to many. If Noreen saw us at a club or competition with our ‘Pop Up’ shop she would always have a look to see what was new in the way of bowls and bowling paraphernalia and have a chat about bowling.
On clearing out Noreen’s property, a number of sets of bowls were found and we were contacted to see if we would be interested in buying them. When we went to see a lady about some bowls, we collected 36 sets! Mainly Crown Green but also some flat green bowls and a number of bowling bags.
So, if you’re interested in purchasing pre-loved Crown Green (or flat) bowls, please call in to see us or get in touch by email, phone or Messenger. The family are keen for the bowls to remain in the area and to ideally to be used by young and new bowler.
Unfortunately, I can’t find a photo of Noreen to add to this post so I have included one of a small car loaded with Noreen’s bowls instead.
Donations in memory of Noreen to the Salvation Army c/o 5, St James Road, Halifax. HX1 1YP and would be much appreciated. https://funeral-notices.co.uk/notice/bradley/4931749

We look forward to seeing you soon; either in the shop or on the green.
We’ve had lots of new Crown Green bowlers in the shop recently which is great to see. And we’re also getting customers who’re travelling quite some distance to visit us (even had customers recently from Scotland and New Zealand who were staying with friends nearby).
We’d like to thank everyone who has pointed new and not so new bowlers in our direction and recommended Well Bowled to them. We really appreciate it very much. Thank you.
Nick (and Tania)

Over the winter months we'll be offering our service to take bowls and jacks to Premier Bowls in Stockport for refurbishment, repair, remodelling, testing and stamping.
Bowls and Jacks will be taken by us to Premier Bowls in Stockport who will carry out the work. Our aim in doing this is to provide a convenient service to bowlers so that they don't have to make the journey themselves, leaving bowlers with more time to bowl!
