Some 26 people, including  members from the Honiton Carers group, visited Honiton Bowling Club and enjoyed ‘having a go’ at bowls during an open weekend for new members.  

One happy participant said: ”Hubby and I just took part in a free, taster session at the Honiton Bowls Club and it was absolutely brilliant, we wholeheartedly recommend it. The facilities are amazing and the coaching staff/members were super-friendly and very welcoming.”
