Following our success in 2023, Meersbrook Park have once again succeeded in getting the match funding support of Sport England for our 2024 Crowdfunder campaign.  Last year we needed funds just to cover our core greenkeeping costs and some essential work in the kitchen.  This year we are Crowdfunding to help us rescue the second green.  We want to bring it back into full use.  A “community green” will ensure that members can play all year, irrespective of whether the top green is being used for competitive matches or by community groups. It will mean that the club could host much larger competitions and having it in use will make us far more visible to those passing by in the park.

The lower green was the original green – one of the first municipal greens in Sheffield.  Just a few years ago it was nearly taken away from the club for commercial uses not related to bowling.  Jim and his team of amateur green keepers and gardeners have done an amazing job of bring it back towards its former glory.  We need funds to continue this project which fits with the clubs aspiration to make Meersbrook Park the city’s, and perhaps the world’s first fully organic Crown Green Bowling facility.

Use the link on our Join page to donate to our Crowfunder by pledging your membership, buying a reward or just to make a donation.

We need to raise £5000 before the end of June.
