Shaftesbury Boules Pitch Will Move For New Car Park

Shaftesbury’s Town Twinning Association has agreed to move its boules pitch to make way for a new car park.

When delegations from Shaftesbury’s twin towns visit, the boules pitch is the focus of social activity. Moving the pitch from Shaftesbury Football Club to a new playing area at Cockram’s will allow the council to fit six more parking spaces onto the new long-stay car park on Coppice Street.

It could also offer more opportunity for competitive boules playing, as you’ll hear in our report.
