For the last three years, club coach Denis Smith and a number of members have given up their Friday afternoons to run the programme. “We’re a community club. It’s available to everybody. It’s great to see the smiles on some of the faces. Bowls should be fun and that’s what we’re trying to achieve,” said Smith. Around 20 pupils from the school have started the year with weekly sessions at the club and it’s hoped they will develop an interest in the game after six weeks of tutoring.
