The earliest photograph available shows the opening of the 1933 season with the new clubhouse in the background.
During the war the clubhouse was occupied by both the Gaumont Picture Company and later by the Army, although bowling continued during this time.
The diamond jubilee in 1991 was well supported and the following year a new club extension was opened, providing some much needed new facilities for the club.
The new clubhouse was officially opened in 1992.
In 2006 the club celebrated its 75th Anniversary, hosting a visit by the English Bowling Association, and also by the Devon County Bowling Associations.
In the early 2000's the club had been expanding quite quickly and new facilites were required to keep pace with growth. Thus in 2007 club members designed and built an extension to the club which included a new men's changing room, a disabled toilet, an extended main club room, extended kitchen and extended ladies changing facilities. This was built with the help of a grant from The Lottery Fund. The new clubhouse was opened at the start of the 2008 season.
