 Directions to Shelton Bowling Club


 The old way of getting to the club has changed and there is now no access through the Redwood Centre. From Shrewsbury direction fork left at Shelton traffic lights onto the A458 Welshpool Road. At the first island take the 1st exit (signposted Redwood Park) onto Somerby Drive. Follow this road for a short distance and turn right into The Furlongs, continue along and bare right then left through a blocked paved courtyard. The car park is a gravelled area through the gate and to the left of the cricket field fencing. (Please do not park in the Residents spaces). Walk through the gate in the cricket fencing and the clubhouse and bowling green are on the right hand side.

If travelling from the A5 direction, at Churncote Island take the A458 Welshpool Road towards Shrewsbury. Continue to the roundabout then take the 3rd exit (signposted Redwood Park) onto Somerby Drive. See paragraph above for the remaining directions.

The meeting also included an EGM to install Roger Whitfield (Battlefield BC) as our new Chairman.
