Cabinet members discussed the matter again after the decision not to include bowls was referred back by scrutiny councillors.

Council Leader Cllr David Sheard listened to bowlers, but said that the financial case did not stack up.

He agreed to continue to meet with bowlers alongside Cabinet colleagues to discuss where and how flat green bowling can be provided once the current sports centre is closed.
