Bowling team praised for helping air ambulance staff!

September 16, 2016



Praise has been handed out to members of the Co-op Luton Bowls club, and their Datchworth opponents, by the Herts Air Ambulance.

A helicopter was forced to land on their bowling green yesterday afternoon after they attended a road crash on Stockingstone Road.

The charity says they handed out refreshments to the "hot and thirsty aircrew", and also donated £70.




A Luton bowls match was delayed and had to re-locate after an air ambulance landed on the green yesterday afternoon.

The chopper was forced to touch down on the Co-Op Luton Bowls Club, after a downdraught meant it couldn't land at the nearby sports ground car park.

A man in his 50s who was injured in a road crash was taken to a major trauma centre after suffering serious head injuries. His condition was described as stable. A spokesman for the club said the helicopter slightly damaged the rink, but the match resumed later on another green."It takes a lot to stop a bowls match," he said.
