MORE than 300 people have signed a petition calling for a community garden at the Inglewood Bowling and Sports Club.
Recently Stirling council reviewed 10 bowling clubs in the area and decided not to fund a refurbishment of the tatty Inglewood club house because of its age and the club’s declining membership.
Petitioners wrote that a community garden would help rejuvenate the Stancliffe Street club.
“After many attempts to identify a location for a community garden in the area, a suitable site has been found within the Inglewood Bowling and Sports Club lease area,” reads the petition.
“It is large, flat and has access to water and many club facilities and infrastructure including parking and meeting rooms.
“The garden would bring extra members and activity to the club.”
Councillor Suzanne Migdale tabled the petition at a council meeting earlier this month and it is now being assessed by the city’s recreation unit.
