Bowling Clubs the world over seem to have great similarities. Despite being some 26 years older than our namesake Club, the Malvern Priory Bowling Club in Worcestershire (UK), photographs and other items on their website do suggest we have similar histories.
Visit the Malvern Priory Bowling Club at www.malvernpriorybowlingclub.com and go to the “ABOUT” page which very graciously mentions the visit of our own Club President, Tony Gamble and his lovely wife Penny, to MPBC in October 2013, as follows:
“It was fantastic to have as our guests of honour, Tony Gamble and his wife Penny at our End of Season Lunch and Prize Giving. Tony is the President of Malvern Bowling Club Australia. Malvern Priory Bowling Club set up links with our sister club in Australia during the last World War when their members kindly sent food parcels to our tightly rationed club members.”
