Bridle Insurance are delighted to announce another partnership arrangement - this time with prestigious bowls club, County Bowls of Northlands Road, Southampton.

The partnership will see Bridle sponsoring the flat green bowling club for the new season and offer discounted insurance for all members, friends and family.

Bridle Insurance spokesman Darren Nangle explained: “Having been introduced to the club by John Russell, a Director of Eastleigh Football Club and a keen player himself, it seemed a perfect partnership. It is a fantastic club with excellent facilities and steeped in history, going back to 1889. A large percentage of the membership is retired and on fixed incomes and this seems a perfect way to help maintain the longevity of the club with our donation and offer the members discounted insurance products”.

Bridle hit the Jack with County Bowls Club

Thrilled President of County Bowls Club Bob Nesbitt said “We are very excited about the relationship with Bridle Insurance as we see it as a double win for our growing membership. This will help maintain the membership costs and save our members and their friends and family money when their car and home insurances are due for renewal”.

County Bowls history is well known to the Hampshire community. 120 years ago a group of businessmen including former Mayor Edwin Jones, bought a piece of land in Northlands Road adjacent to Hampshire Cricket Club’s previous home and created the club. Edwin Jones being the first President of the club, which remains a private club, owned and run by the members themselves.

It is widely renowned for its friendliness, and new members in particular receive a warm welcome and are quickly absorbed into the fold. It is open for outdoor bowling only, between mid April and Late September every year.
