The tenpin bowling centre at the Anchor Street leisure complex in Bishop's Stortford which has been vacant for almost four-and-a-half years is to be brought back to life.

The owners of the neighbouring Bacchus nightclub and bar on the town centre site announced today (Wednesday) that they are investing more than £1m to open a new state-of-the-art alley in place of the redundant 1st Bowl venue, which closed in September 2013.

Jane Fraser, a co-director of Bacchus with daughter Lara and husband Brian, said that they acquired the premises two weeks ago and plan to open the new attraction in July.

She said: “When we moved to Stortford 12 years ago, our kids loved visiting the bowling alley that was open then. We were very disappointed when it closed.

“Our architects have drawn up some really exciting plans that will include the newest bowling lanes and equipment straight from the US.”

The new venture will also feature a virtual reality golf range, sports bar and food court.
