A popular Eastbourne bowling club will appear on television this weekend after film crews visited the town on Wednesday (May 18).

Eastbourne Bowling Club, based at the Saffrons, will on the BBC’s Sunday Politics programme on Sunday, May 22 between 11am and 12.15pm.

Club members were asked for their views on the EU referendum by Sara Neville and filmed playing a match.

Eastbourne Bowling Club’s Mike Cartwright said, “There was a match in progress which was not disturbed and many Club Members joined-in as extras. Sara was charming and made each of her interviewees feel at ease.

“They filmed for about one hour but we will be featured for only two or three minutes, I think. It was a fun experience for us all, if in rather damp conditions”.

Despite the showery weather, a scheduled Ladies match against the Parade Bowls Club went ahead and was used as a background for the show.

Anyone interested in taking up bowls should contact Eastbourne Bowling Club on 724340, or visit www.eastbournebowlingclub.com.
