Feniton Bowls Club
The new outdoor season at Feniton kicked off with the Opening Drive on Sunday 22nd April at 2 p.m. Some 40 members enjoyed the afternoon in perfect weather. The President, Don Coyne, opened the green by delivering the first bowl of the 2018 season.
The Open Evening and Barbecue took place on Friday 11th May. Unfortunately, as last year, we were blessed with rain so very little use was made of the outside facilities. It was, therefore, decided that we would have an Open Day on Sunday 3rd June starting at 2 p.m. when we hoped the sun would shine. It did and were able to welcome seven new people who had a look around and tried out the game. Some of those have stated their intention to take up the option of coaching sessions and we hope we can welcome them as new bowling members..
On Thursday 5th July 34 pupils and 3 members of staff from year 6 at Feniton School visited the club for a fun bowls session on the green. A number of exercises were undertaken and the morning concluded with everyone taking part in a series of 'spiders'. It was great to see so many young people enjoying their time on the green and we hope that seeds may have been sown for some of them to take up our game in the future.
