Spalding club’s boost for green maintenance
Spalding Bowling Club has bought new equipment for green maintenance.
The purchase was made possible thanks to funding from Blackcraig Wind Farm (Scotland) and will help improve the quality of the green as well as making maintenance much easier for the greenkeeper and other volunteers.
Spalding Bowling Club, which was founded in 1912 and is situated in Dalry, provides outdoor lawn green bowling. The club membership is open to anyone and welcomes visitors.
The club offers structured bowling games two or three times a week during the bowling season, which runs from April to September, along with a variety of different club competitions open to club members and annual open competitions.
Members can also use the facility at other times to play informal games in small groups.
Spectators are also very welcome and there are benches provided for them to sit and enjoy watching the sport.
The club is registered as a community amateur sport club.
The club is currently operating for members only on a limited basis following the guidelines issued by Bowls Scotland in respect of the Covid-19 phase two restrictions. However, once the restrictions are removed in the future the club plans to hold some try bowls sessions to allow people to go along and experience the sport.
The club would welcome anyone of any age to have a game. Bowls will be provided.
Anyone who is interested and would like some further information on the club can contact the president James Hutchison on 01644 430639.
Blackcraig Wind Farm Community Fund offers funding from Blackcraig Wind Farm (Scotland) and is administered by Foundation Scotland in partnership with the Glenkens and District Trust.
