The day started early for Malmesbury Bowls and Social club by having a table outside our local Waitrose and Co-Op stores. Enthusiastic members talked to the morning shoppers to encourage and direct people to the bowls club, distributing information about our open day alongside leaflets supplied by Bowls England.
Rinks were set up with traditional mats and jacks, various bowls related fun exercises and also Short Mat facilities, supplied and staffed by members from Crudwell.
Malmesbury club members and visitors arrived to enjoy the bowling experiences. Balloons and bright sunshine helped to provide a carnival atmosphere.
By early afternoon all the rinks were full with people from 8 to 86 having a go. Membership forms were distributed and we look forward to their return!
