A brand new eight-lane bowling alley has opened in Seaton Carew, Hartlepool after Yorkshire Bank provided a funding package for a complete premises re-fit.
The new loan, granted to Rubicon Pastimes, allows for the extension of the existing premises and the installation of both a bowling alley, and a dining area.
As well as the new bowling complex the company also owns two family entertainment centres, one in Seaton Carew and a second one in Scarborough, which was also purchased through funding by Yorkshire Bank, in 2013.
Lloyd Nichols, managing director at Rubicon Pastimes Ltd, said: “This loan from Yorkshire Bank has provided us with the investment we need to completely refurbish and fit out our new bowling alley. We are really excited about the future and look forward to continuing to expand the business in the years to come.”
The attraction is expected to bring up to 50,000 additional visitors to the area, and has received a number of positive reviews during its opening weekend.
