Redcliffe Homes, who have created a new community at Whatley Drive in Pewsey, are sponsoring the club’s scorecards and providing stickers for each player’s woods.

Lorraine Kendrick, sales and marketing manager of Redcliffe Homes, said the club had played an important role in the close knit Wiltshire community since it was launched back in 1923.

She said: “We wanted to support the local community and the bowls club is an important part of the village and makes great efforts to attract people of all ages to the sport through open days and taster sessions.

“We wanted to help in a practical way so by providing scorecards and stickers that are needed for games the club get practical help from our presence in Pewsey.”

The club is situated behind the Co-op next to the tennis club in the centre of the village not far from Redcliffe Homes’ Whatley Drive development – which includes Whatley Mews, designed for those who are 55 and over.

Whatley Mews features eleven two and three bedroom homes arranged around a communal garden.

Said Lorraine Kendrick: “We hope that some of the new neighbours we bring to the village join the bowls club and boost numbers.”

Pewsey Vale is a mixed club with 45 men and 25 lady members and is affiliated to Bowls England and Bowls Wiltshire.

Ladies captain Caroline Sprott said: “The new scorecards and stickers certainly help freshen up the club’s equipment and help deliver the message we are an outstanding club and community facility.”
