A WEE COUNTY bowls club will be hosting a wellbeing day with the hope of gauging interest in starting a junior section at the club.

Alloa Co-op Bowling Club has extended an open invitation to anyone interested in trying bowls to attend the session on Saturday, April 8, at 12pm.

James Lindsay, match secretary at the club, has recently been appointed the role of Try Bowls Activator by Bowls Scotland, and is eager to revitalise interest in bowls, particularly towards children, with the aim of launching a junior section toward the end of April.

He said: “We’re running the wellbeing day for people to come down, socialise and give bowls a try.

“We’re eager to show that bowls is no longer a male orientated sport, it is a great opportunity to make new friends and get out in the fresh air for some light physical activity.

“Bowls Scotland representatives will be coming along and they’ll be leading the kids activities on the green.

"If there’s enough interest, we will be offering weekly coaching sessions which will lead to competitions with other local juniors sections at the end of May.”

James is eager to make the wellbeing day a big event and has received support from various businesses around Clacks including the Wee County Men’s Shed.

There will be a range of activities on during the day, including tombolas for both adults and children and an Easter egg hunt.
