7.30pm. The cost will be £1 per session and it will be open to everyone who would like to
Stratford District Council has provided support in setting
up the Fenny Compton group, with the loan of equipment, instructors, advice on funding and
help with promotional material. Further information of the new group is available from
John Unitt on 01295 770349.
Earlier this year the second short mat bowls tournament
took place at Stratford's community sports centre with a record 23 teams taking part, many
of which also took part in the first Stratford district short mat bowls league last year.
The district council has also helped many of the clubs in
the league, and since 1994, 15 short mat bowl clubs have been set up with council support.
