EAST MIDLAND AIRPORT GRANT
Kegworth Bowls Club thanks East Midlands Airport for giving us a grant. This has enabled us to purchase a much needed storage shed and some various event/patio tables. These items will benefit all members and visitors for seasons to come.
New Patio Area
Thanks go the Kegworth Hotel for supplying the bowls club with the paving. This has enabled the club to create a large social area where players, visitors and the general public can sit and watch the game of bowls. (Photos in the gallery)
Kegworth Bowls Club has secured a £10,000 grant from Biffa Award, a multi-million pound fund that helps to build communities and transforms lives through awarding grants to communities and environmental projects across the UK, as part of the Landfill Communities Fund.
Kegworth Bowls Club is affiliated to Bowls Leicestershire and Bowls England and is open to all. The project, which was awarded funding under Biffa Award's Community Building theme, will improve the clubhouse by replacing two windows and two doors, painting the external cladding and veranda, and replacing the kitchen units.
The building is unique to it's age, this project will give a new lease of life to enable the sport of bowls to survive on the site for future generations. The windows and doors will improve security and the external painting will help preserve the building for future generations. The new kitchen will enable the club to open it's doors to many other people and groups within the community and surrounding villages.
The aim of this project is that these improvements to the building will help attract new users and groups, providing facilities for local communities, and help us to focus on developing bowl skills.
