With Spring just around the corner, have you got protection in place for your Bowling Green Ditches?

Want to make sure your green is in great playing condition as your Club re-opens and the restrictions are lifted

Is your Bowls club ready for the new season? One area of the greens which is under constant wear and tear from the unpredictable and varied British environment 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.  

There are several types of ditch liner available from simple rubber chippings to imported mats.  Unfortunately, some liners can deteriorate rapidly and fail in their main functions, which also leaves the green looking untidy.

The Clifton Rubber ditch liner has soft rubber spikes which protect the woods and jacks which drop into the ditch and stop them from moving, meeting the criteria and regulations set by the bowls governing bodies.  The Ditch Liners are UK manufactured at our factory in Cambridgeshire from a high quality rubber material which is extremely durable in the outside environment. 

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

Clubs who have installed this innovative product are delighted with the finished product and the ditch liners’ longevity.

Innovative Design

Clifton Rubber have worked in conjunction with their local Bowls club to design and develop an innovative rubber ditch liner system, which is now installed in hundreds of Clubs worldwide.

St Albans Bowling Club commented:

“We looked at cheaper alternatives but felt that it was worth buying a quality product that would have a longer life span. These liners have been the perfect solution and are extremely low maintenance.”

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.”

Save up to 75% on your Track Wheels

In recent years there has been an increase in demand for rubber tracked tractors.  A key factor in their growth in popularity is that tracks undoubtedly give a better vehicle weight distribution in wet conditions and allow access to fields where the standard four wheeled tractors cannot go.

One drawback of the tracked systems available, is the maintenance expense. Rather than simply replacing worn tyres, as on a traditional four wheeled tractor, the track system requires complete replacement of the wheel once the tyre becomes worn.  However, in 90% of replacements only the tyre is worn, and the steel hub is often perfectly re-usable, adding unnecessary expense to replacement parts. 

To solve this issue, at Clifton Rubber we offer a proven method for replacing worn tyres.  We will strip off the unusable rubber or polyurethane tyre and mould a new tyre directly to the original hub.  We have the capability to refurbish all types of wheel for all types of tracked vehicle, from main drives to the mid and idler wheels, with service exchange wheels available off the shelf for the most popular models.  The result is a high grade, abrasion resistant tyre with good tear strength and longevity.

Tracked Tractor Wheels

Regular feedback from customers confirms that their refurbished wheels offer similar wear characteristics to the original wheels, but at a significant cost saving, often as much as 75% cheaper as going straight to the manufacturer.

We are Supporting Crisis at Christmas

We close off 2023, as we did last year, with sponsoring Crisis at Christmas – a very worthwhile cause which our Sales Executive, Andrew Meddings, is devoting 5 days of his time to over the Christmas period. Clifton Rubber are delighted to donate to this worthwhile cause helping people start a life beyond homelessness.

If you want to find out a little more, have a read below:

No one should be homeless and alone this Christmas

Crisis is a charity which campaigns on behalf of people experiencing homelessness. At Christmas, they have their Crisis at Christmas campaign when they open day centres across London in schools and colleges.

These provide homeless and isolated people with hot meals and drinks, clothing, showers and haircuts, and access to doctors, dentists, chiropodists, and physiotherapists. There is counselling and advice on housing, employment, welfare, and benefits. Hotel rooms are available where rough sleepers can be referred to if they would like a safe place to stay.

This is supported by over 100 general volunteers, plus others who provide the different services, with each person giving up their time to offer the guests a safe, warm, and friendly environment in which to spend Christmas.

This will be the 11th year that Andrew has volunteered at the School 21 in Stratford, where he shares responsibility with other senior volunteers for the day to day running of the centre. The charity estimates that it costs £29.73 for each guest to access the services available at Christmas, plus the chance to receive year-round help from the charity which may help them improve their lives.

Michelle, one of the Guests said: “I was sleeping rough for six months. But my first day at Crisis helped me feel safe. It was like a weight had been lifted. Now I can focus on my future.’’

Andrew says: “I have seen how a hot meal, a conversation with someone, a shower, haircut, clean clothes, or just being warm and dry, can make such a difference to someone who would otherwise be on the streets, and the long term help that Crisis can offer can transform someone’s life.”
