We were invited to take part in the event by the Harpur Trust, and we were very glad to get the invite. As a club, we thought we might get a few people to try it out. How wrong we were! We were nearly overwhelmed with the response by the public to giving it a go. Familes, friends, people of all ages from 5 years old to retired people were willing to have-a-go! We had all 6 rinks avilable from 11:00 am through to around 3:20 pm (when rain stopped play). And all of them were in use almost all the time.

Everybody in the club who was available came along and helped - a wonderful turn out. We all had a great time, and hope the people who gave it a try will remember the fun they had for a long time to come.

We had help from the Bedford Borough Bowling Club, and our thanks go to them for lending us bowls and equipment. We had enquiries about membership from a number of people, both for our club, and the Borough Bowling Club.

We offered tea, coffee, biscuits, and cakes to those who came along, and I must express my thanks for the "catering corps" who tirelessly served people, cleared away, and washed up. Not the most glamorous role - but a vital one, and much appreciated.
