Westwood Works 1903-2003


A Bowling Green was created by Werner, Pfleiderer & Perkins in 1912. When the Alma Road Ground was purchased in 1919, a Bowling Green was laid at a cost of 47.10s 0d. A new Bowling Green was laid adjacent to the Tennis Courts in March 1935 and a Bowls pavilion constructed. A new, full size Green was constructed incorporating the fourth Tennis Court and opened by the then President, Mr G. Lewis, in June 1950.
