North Greenwich Bowls Club in Island Gardens, 1901-1910 Founded in 1901, Andrew Spring said of it: All members of the club were either managers of local businesses or shop-keepers, of which some names are still remembered: Mr Barham, grocer; Mr Jarvis, draper and tobacconist; Mr Hoad, Mr Chick and Mr Muggleton . Membership was exclusive to the privileged few and it was not until after the 1914-18 war that the public was admitted. Donated by Mrs E. Hitchins
