Charmouth bowl in the new season

PUBLISHED: 18:04 22 April 2015 | UPDATED: 18:04 22 April 2015


A day of glorious weather combined with one of the club’s best turnout of visitors made Sunday’s’ new season open day at Charmouth one of the best on record.

Members were delighted to welcome more than 20 visitors who went along to sample the game of lawn bowls.

Visitors, keen to assess their skills on the green, were each allocated a place on one of the four rinks where they were able to play alongside members. Breaking for refreshments in mid-afternoon, chairman Jim Greenhalgh took the opportunity to welcome all the guests, thanking them for their interest and assuring them of a warm welcome to the club should they decide to pursue the game further.

Having suffered a decline in membership in recent years Greenhalgh commented should the new surge in interest be sustained then the club would be able to move forward on a much firmer footing.

For anyone who has an interest in the game, but was unable to get along to the open day, there is an open invitation to drop in to any of their forward bowls sessions which are every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday at 2pm throughout the summer.
