Sun shines as the bowls season gets underway

Glorious sunshine greeted the opening weekend of the bowls season in Woodford and there were plenty of players down there to enjoy it.

All rinks were packed with players keen to get on the mat for the opening drive of the season on Saturday, while the following day Woodford Bowls Club held an open day to attract new players to the game.

Well over 50 people took the club up on the invitation and the members were there to meet and greet them, give them a little grounding in the game and then share a cup of tea and a piece of cake.

It’s not too late for others to pop down and give bowls a go. Any afternoon, new players are very welcome.
