As the season draws to a close, are you carrying out maintenance at your Bowling Club?

No doubt you will want to use the down time to ensure your Bowling Club is set up ready for the start of next season.

One area of the greens which is under constant wear and tear from the unpredictable and varied British weather is the ditches and their liners.  

Ditch liners play an important role in both protecting the woods and jacks from surface damage and stopping them moving from where they drop into the gutter.  

Bowls Ditch Liners

As a British manufacturer of rubber and polyurethane products, we have developed an innovative rubber Ditch Liner system, which is now installed in hundreds of Clubs worldwide.

Meeting the criteria and regulations set by the bowls governing bodies, the Ditch Liner System has soft rubber spikes which protect the woods and jacks which drop into the ditch and stop them from moving.  

The Ditch Liners are manufactured at Clifton Rubber’s factory in the UK from a high-quality rubber, which is extremely durable in the outside environment.  


The product is maintenance free and very cost effective compared to similar products.  They come in one metre sections and the width is suitable for standard bowling club ditches of 200mm – 300mm in width.  

Andrew Meddings, Sales Executive at Clifton Rubber said: 

“There are several types of ditch liner available on the market.  These range in quality from simple rubber chippings to the specially moulded mats that we provide.  Unfortunately, some liners can deteriorate rapidly, especially cheaper imported versions.  It’s important to invest in a quality product rather than risk a false economy with a cheaper alternative.”

Sawtry Bowling Club commented:

“We’d tried various methods of lining our ditches in the past, but they were poor quality and didn’t last long.  Having seen what Huntingdon Indoor Bowls Club were using we contacted Clifton Rubber straight away.   We’ve now had their Ditch Liners in place for over 3 years and they are excellent quality, protect the bowls and are definitely worth the investment.” 

The Marchmount Bowling Club commented:

The main function of a Ditch Liner should be to hold the Jack in place and protect it, along with any Bowls that roll into it.  The Clifton Rubber Ditch Liners are ideal for this job.  

I’ve played indoor bowls and seen the Ditch Liners there. We did a bit of investigative work to see what products were out there on the market.  We read the reviews and got a very competitive quote, so we decided to invest.”

We’ve achieved Cyber Essentials Certified Plus Status

Clifton Rubber are delighted to have achieved Cyber Essentials Certified Plus Status.

Cyber Essentials is a simple but effective, government backed scheme that will help you to protect your organisation, whatever its size, against a whole range of the most common cyber attacks.

Certification gives you peace of mind that your defences will protect against the vast majority of common cyber attacks simply because these attacks are looking for targets which do not have the Cyber Essentials technical controls in place.

Cyber Essentials Plus still has the Cyber Essentials trademark simplicity of approach, and the protections you need to put in place are the same, but for Cyber Essentials Plus a hands-on technical verification is carried out.

At Clifton Rubber we now have peace of mind that our systems and data are protected at the highest level.

Getting ready for Harvest season

Now the potato and root crop harvest season is almost upon us, it’s time to make sure your equipment is ready.   You need your machinery in tip top condition for the lifting season, so it’s beneficial to look at replacing worn parts, rather than risking a breakdown. 

A delay in harvesting due to machinery failure can be costly, so it is advisable to service and replace your machinery’s key components in time for harvest. 

Here at Clifton Rubber, we offer a wide range of rubber and polyurethane components which are ideal for root crop harvesting machinery.  

These include Clod, Haulm and Dahlman Rollers, stars, cleaning coils, segments, and sponge rings.  

Vegetable growers need to know that they are getting the best value for money by investing in quality equipment from a trusted supplier.

A current Clifton Rubber customer commented: 

“We always come to Clifton Rubber as we’ve found their products have a longer lifespan and are excellent value for money.  For us, we want to use the best products in our equipment and know that we won’t experience costly downtime due to unexpected breakdowns.  Harvest season is one of the most important times of the year and we must make sure our machinery is ready to go.”

Haulm Rollers

Clifton Rubber’s range of rubber and polyurethane components are available for use in many aspects of the potato and root crop industry, including soil preparation, planting, harvesting, cleaning and packing.  We recognise the requirement for product quality, efficiency and value for money, and are proud to have many OEMs and growers using our components in their equipment.
