Market Rasen Lawn Bowls Club is holding an open day this Saturday, April 19, when anyone, regardless of age, can go along to have a go.

The event begins at 2pm and team members will be available to provide instruction for those who need it and to answer any questions about this sport, membership or the club in general.

“The Bowls Club is currently signed up in two day leagues this summer and there are several opportunities to participate in competitive lawn bowls for those who are interested,” said organiser Reg Nash.

To help advertise the open day, the club had a stand at the latest MR Big market.

And as well as recruiting new members, they held a raffle and tombola to raise funds for the club’s much needed improvements.

The club has just started on a three-year plan for improvements; most of the funds will hopefully come from grants, but fundraising is also needed.

“We would like to thank the local traders and numerous individuals who gave us donations and, most importantly, all those individuals who bought tickets on the day,” added Mr Nash.
