It’s all change this week at Grantham’s ten pin bowling centre in Dysart Road.

Tenpin, which have run the centre for several years, has signed over the lease to Albert Slater, owner of neighbouring Fun Farm which occupies the same site. Contracts were exchanged on Tuesday.

Jane Gadd, who is the manager of Fun Farm, will become site manager in charge of both Fun Farm and the bowling centre. Jane, who worked for seven years at the former Grantham Bowl before Tenpin took over, said she was looking forward to becoming involved with that business once again.

She said: “It’s all very exciting. We want to get the bowling centre back to being a real family entertainment venue once again.

“It’s been a struggle for a family of four to afford an evening’s bowling, with drinks and food as well. We want to change that and are introducing new prices to make it more affordable for everyone.”

The changes will not just be confined to the bowling.

“We are also introducing a new menu for the snack bar,” explained Jane. “This will include vegetarian and healthy eating options, and at more affordable prices. We will also have a kids’ menu.

“It is about giving the bowling centre back to the community and getting more people taking part.”
