Our Thursday Community Project

Our club linked up with Support Horizons, Link Visiting Scheme in 2012 to introduce outdoor bowls as a fun activity to these groups.

Having committed ourselves to this project, we began working through what was necessary to meet the needs of those who would be taking part. After much discussion our club realized we were in need of a start up fund.

An approach was made to the Berkshire Community Foundation which was able to meet our needs through the Herbert and Peter Blagrave Charitable Trust. We are proud to say they are supporting our project over a three year period. It was our intention though, to keep this project going way beyond three years.

Such a wonderful sport must be passed on to just about everyone who is able to step onto the green and roll a wood (bowl). It is our intention to enable our guests to have an enjoyable and memorable experience of this subtle sport.

Our project is now five years old, we have been given financial support from the Berkshire Community Foundation, Comic Relief and the Harmony Hope and Healing Fund to keep the project running for at least another two more years. Our membership also comprises of people of advancing years who benefit.

The club considers itself to be well established in the local community. We enjoy our guests and look forward to sharing our celebrations, anniversaries (happy and sad) and the love of friendships forged. We look forward to many more seasons of building bridges.
