Spald­ing club’s boost for green main­te­nance

The Galloway News - - Sport - BOWLS

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.
