A 65-year-old club that was founded on a defunct tennis court on the village recreation ground in 1962, and whose homely clubhouse is an old agricultural building thought to have been a chicken shed, is celebrating a new sponsorship deal.
Douch & Small, based in Wimborne is backing the popular club, which has a fixture card full of friendlies and more than 40 playing and social members.
Club captain Dawn Jones said: “We would like to express our gratitude for the sponsorship from Douch & Small which will help us enjoy a long and successful future.”
Peter Douch, Chairman of Douch Family Funeral Directors, which includes Douch & Small, said: “Following our relationship with Dawn Jones through her work with Partnership for Older People Programme in the Ferndown area, we heard she was a keen bowler and that her team were looking for sponsorship. We were only too pleased to help.
“Douch & Small in Wimborne has a long association with local groups and sports clubs and we actively try and do our bit for the communities we work in.
“Everyone at Cranborne is very friendly and they have a beautiful green. I look forward to many future visits.”
