The Open Evening proved to be a big success thanks to the hard work of club volunteers, writes Julie Grant.
The club opened up the indoor arena to visitors last Friday and coaches Roger Binmore and Denis Hillyear helped newcomers in the skills of bowling.
Hopefully some will continue their interest in this sport as a pastime, hobby or at more competitive levels.
There was competition action last week for both the men and the ladies.
The men achieved a very good win in the two home two away rink national - the Denny Cup – beating Donyatt 80 shots to 64 with both home rinks winning.
