After 10 years of lobbying and discussions with the Council the Friends of Downhills Park have finally been successful in getting agreement for a small new cafe on the site of the old bowling club (demolished a couple of years back as unsafe). It will be smaller than the old clubhouse, but more compact and robust. The Friends will be helping to manage it and will be able to use it for park meetings.
