Stevenage MP, Stephen McPartland, was bowled over when he visited his local Hollywood Bowl after the centre reopened. The Hollywood Bowl Stevenage team has worked to ensure that the centre is able to welcome back family and friends to ‘Have Fun and Play Safe’, and invited the Stevenage MP to check out its newly installed lane dividers, which allow guests to feel secure in their own private space when bowling.
Stephen McPartland Member of Parliament for Stevenage said, “I was delighted to have been invited by the team to visit Hollywood Bowl in Stevenage. The past 15 months has been incredibly difficult for businesses who have been forced to close their doors on several occasions and for long periods of time. The Hollywood Bowl team has worked diligently to ensure they’re able to open in a Covid secure way and I wouldn’t have any hesitancy in encouraging my constituents to visit the centre.”
Darryl Lewis, Chief Operating Officer at Hollywood Bowl Group said, “It was our pleasure to welcome Stephen McPartland MP to Hollywood Bowl Stevenage, to give him a guided tour of the centre and talk him through our health and safety measures. It’s great to have his support and we look forward to welcoming Stevenage locals back through our doors over the coming months.”
Hollywood Bowl Stevenage underwent a £400,000 refurbishment over lockdown and is now a latest generation Hollywood Bowl with an update to its amusements, bar and at the lanes. It is proud to have a ‘Book without worry’ guarantee in place, offering refunds or amendments should bookings need to be changed due to Government guidelines. Each lane in the centre also has its own distinctive bowling balls with no two adjacent lanes the same which helps to mitigate the risk of touching a ball that another group has used. The centre team are also continuing with the extra Covid safety measures, including cleaning the balls, touch screens and seating areas after each customer group.
