Swindon Bowls Club have once again hosted an event with students from St Joseph’s School.
In the morning of Tuesday 18th July, we had 22 students and in the afternoon 28, plus 3 members of staff during each session.
Both the students and staff enjoyed themselves immensely.
Carl and I wish to thank Cathleen Goddard, Terry Baker and Den Blaxhall for their assistance, without which we would not have been able to manage.
Below, is an inclusion for the School’s Newsletter and some photos.
“Thanks to our friends at Swindon Bowls Club for hosting us during the Activities Week. Students received instruction on the fine art of lawn bowls. We all had a wonderful time learning a new sport and we look forward to working with them again in the future”.
Congratulations to our very own Howard Pryse for being awarded Bowls England Life Membership.
This prestigious award is in recognition of Howard’s outstanding services to the sport at Club, County and National level.
Full details of this award are on the Club noticeboard.
