After 10 years at Genotin Terrace Bush Hill Bowls moved to Lincoln Road in March 2023. The distance between the two locations is small – maybe a mile and half by car, or 800 yards as the crow flies.
Here’s a picture
And here’s why: we came to the end of our lease at Genotin Terrace. It was a good lease, interior repairing only (most are ‘full repairing’ meaning the tenant is responsible for anything and everything that needs mending).
We were offered a renewal at a 50% increase, AND a switch to full repairing. Well, bowls is ok to earn a living, but not to earn a fortune, so we had to move.
Our choice of location has raised a few eyebrows. The house in front of Scoffields Garage was in poor repair and uninhabited. The ground floor, however, was spacious and after a bit of sprucing up has become our new shop.
But not for long! Medicus Health Partners, which runs the Health Centre opposite us, is intending to buy the whole of 180 Lincoln Road, including our shop, Scoffields Garage and all the workshops on the plot.
When will this happen? Probably within eighteen months so in the meantime we’re on the lookout for our next premises. If you happen to hear of somewhere that might make a decent bowls shop in the Enfield area, do let us know!
