We have three church halls and these host a number of groups, both Church and Community. One of these groups os the Indoor Bowling Club which has been established since 1997. The modest annual subscription allows many to join in the fun, however we need some helping hands and backs to set up before the activities.
Volunteers can helps us out by:
Getting the brand new indoor bowling mats from storage, onto trolleys and rolled out in one of the halls. If volunteers wish so, they can either join in the bowling or else they can decide to drop by later at the same hall and help out again, by rolling up the mats and taking them back to storage. Bowling sessions are usually held between 1:30pm and 4pm, so ideally the halls are ready set around 1pm and cleared again after 4pm.
We are pleased to announce this years display will be held on Saturday 5th November at the usual location on Barassie Shorefront.

Volunteers can help out by:
- Going round the fair grounds with collection cans.
- Helping in the setting up and clearing of event.
