The members of the Club have dealt with some challenges during the construction work which has taken place very close to the club at Anchorsholme Park.

The site team have worked very closely with the club members to create the luxury new home for them. It's a big improvement on their old club house (below).

There is so much to offer at the new venue. It's a great area for outdoor bowls, plus indoor Bowls, whist and dominos during bad weather. The building is well insulated and fantastic for use during the cold and windy winter months. There is a new kitchen facility, toilets and a large indoor space. 

The club also have many social events and there's a great sense of community support and a friendly, welcoming atmosphere.   

The facility is suitable for anyone with a disability and the club welcome people to come along and see the new building, have some lunch and meet new friends. The event will run from 1-4pm on Tuesday 17 October.


More about Anchorsholme Park

Anchorsholme Park sits between the seafront and main highway/tramway at the northernmost end of Blackpool seafront.

As you head north towards Blackpool's boundary with Cleveleys you pass a vintage tram stop (and public toilets) at Little Bispham. This is where Anchorsholme Park begins.

From here the Princes Way (the coast road) splits from Queen's Promenade (the main highway adjacent to the tramway). Anchorsholme Park is the area in between.

This is also the area where the once famous Cleveleys Hydro Hotel was to be found.

Location: Anchorsholme Park is directly opposite Anchorsholme Lane Tram stop on the line to Cleveleys and Fleetwood.


Civil Engineering at Anchorsholme Park

Two separate major civil engineering works are underway in the park and at the seafront.

Improving bathing waters:

Extensive works are being carried out by United Utilities.

They have built a storage tank under the park, to store sewage and storm water during periods of heavy rainfall, to reduce the amount of times that it is necessary to make combined sewer discharges out to sea. 

The second phase of their works is to construct a new pumping station and add a new, longer outfall pipe.

When these works are completed, the park will be relandscaped and new facilities added as the remediation phase gets under way.

Strengthening sea defences:

The sea defences have also been rebuilt by Blackpool Council - Balfour Beatty were the main contractors for that project.
