IAN HART: Bowls should stay in town
Worthing Herald - almost 5 years

This is not the first time the threat of Leamington Spa hosting the championships has come up. Similar discussions took place five years ago but with some positive action Worthing Borough Council got another five-year deal from Bowls England.
