Five children attended a junior taster session on Saturday 2nd May under the guidance of our coaching coordinator Jenny Coates and a small group of helpers.
Ben , Liv and Flo were from St Josephs in Devizes, Casper who lives in Devizes but goes to Great Cheverell Junior school and Liam from Melksham. Liam’s parents bowl at Avon in Melksham but they have no junior section so when they heard about the Devizes initiative they were happy to bring Liam along.
All bonded very well and thoroughly enjoyed themselves one mum even acted as scorer and plans are in the pipeline for them to attend again so who knows we may yet be able to form a junior section with hope for new younger payers joining us leading to a stable future for the club.
It was a very warm morning.so a tea and biscuits break was very acceptable to bowlers and helpers alike.
