A welcome boost for bowlers

Members of Ilkeston Rutland Bowls Club have hit the ‘jack’-pot after a successful bid for a £500 grant from Erewash Borough Council.

The club is keen to attract new members and applied for money through the council’s Small Grants Scheme so they could buy bowls that can be easily used by people new to the sport and by players with a disability.

Members play at Rutland Sports Park in Ilkeston and have been campaigning to encourage new members of all ages and abilities to join them – and they say the £500 grant is a major boost to help achieve their aim.
