RAMSEY’S new tenpin bowling and leisure centre is set to be open in time for Easter.
Alan Price of Buffalo Bowling and Leisure, the company transforming the old swimming pool on Queen’s Promenade, confirmed the good news to Ramsey Commissioners during a site inspection this month.
The building was decommissioned and ownership transferred to the board in July 2009. Following a process of advertising for expressions of interest for future use of the premises, Buffalo Bowling and Leisure’s proposal to create a tenpin bowling complex was seen as offering the greatest benefit to the town and resulted in the commissioners granting the company a 25-year lease on the building.
Following the site visit, board chairman Captain Nigel Malpass said: ‘The commissioners are delighted the project is now on target for an Easter opening, especially with the additional Bank Holiday to celebrate the Royal Wedding, which means extended opportunities for people to come to Ramsey and benefit from what we are confident will become a major leisure attraction.’
He added: ‘Buffalo Bowling and Leisure’s investment in this project, together with the support of Sure Isle of Man are unequivocal votes of confidence in the future of Ramsey and we wish the venture every success.’
Membership packs and details of special opening offers are now available from the complex’s foyer, Monday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm.
