Club History and Membership Information



Cramlington Bowling Club opened in 1927 as an EBF Club. 

In 1969 it changed to an EBA Club with 24 Members.

The Bowling Club is situated at Ann Welfare, Klondyke.

This site is near to the Ann Pit which was sunk in 1825.

The Pit has long since disappeared, as have all the other coal mines in the area.

The Miners' Welfare Institute building was also situated on the

same site as the Bowling Club, hence the name 'Ann Welfare'.

The Institute is also long gone but the history of the mining industry,

particularly in the local mines here in Cramlington,

remains in the memories of many of its residents.
