It's the taking part that counts for the members of a bowls club celebrating its 50th anniversary.

Over the years generations of players at Gorleston Mixed Bowling Club have enjoyed taking to the greens for a leisurely game.

The Cliff Top bowling green-based club is not in a league, but holds some internal competitions.

The faces have changed since the club was founded in January 1958, but it remains popular with nearly 40 enthusiastic members.

Age is no barrier and the more relaxed approach tends to attract older members who are familiar figures on the green throughout the week.

The anniversary is being celebrated with a trophy that the winner will get to keep, played for on August 8.

The annual subscription is £3 and new members are always welcome to turn up at the green prior before start of play at 2pm, Monday to Friday.

For more information call the secretary Reg Whiting on 01493 661688.
