Over 800 people attended the Open Day Launch of Breakers Bowling on Friday 21st November – with one visitor even coming from Devon!
Open from 3.00pm, the venue gave Andover residents the chance to see the results of the work that has gone into re-opening the former bowling establishment.
There was a steady flow of people from young adults to not so young adults all day and into the evening with the venue also getting the benefit of the Christmas Lights Switch On and Fireworks.
The official opening took place at 8.30pm with 13 year old Sophie Hemsley – one of the many volunteers – cutting the ribbon under the watchful eyes of Olaf and Doc McStuffin from Birthday Buddies and The Pin from Breakers.
There was an incident at around 1.00am when a smoke detector was activated by the fog machine however the venue was fully evacuated in under 4 minutes with both Police and Fire services saying they were very impressed.
