Club Archives

The Falcon Bowling and Social Club has enjoyed over a century of history in the making. During this time it has seen and accommodated many changes and influences which have shaped and developed its aims and objectives, leading it ever upwards to the prestigious and affectionate position it enjoys within the bowling fraternity of Essex and the rest of the UK.
 
A remarkable collection of archived records, reports and photographs have been cared for and stored during each step of the club’s evolution, marking its growth, successes and defeats along the way.
