Big-hearted bowlers in Leeds are on a roll after giving a warm welcome to all comers during the cost of living crisis.

Harehills Park Bowling Club has seen a huge surge in new players since signing up to become one of the city’s Warm Spaces, a network of venues helping people in Leeds manage their home energy costs and get free support, advice and guidance.

Since officially becoming a Warm Space in January, the club, which has been established for more than a century, has been welcoming hundreds more people to free, accessible bowling sessions every week alongside other games, a heated pavilion, food and refreshments.

Regular participants range in age from 30 up to 90 years old, with absolute beginners joining in to learn the historic sport’s intricacies from seasoned bowlers.
