Members of the bowls for wheelchair users club have celebrated their 10th anniversary with tea and cake, writes Simon McKenna, manager of Lynnsport.
The group started in February 2004 after West Norfolk Borough Council invested in specialist Bradshaw Buggies, which allowed wheelchair users to play on the indoor bowls green at Lynnsport.
The group started with just five members, four who still regularly attend, and has grown to 16 members. Members include people who have suffered a stroke, have Alzheimer’s, are blind, deaf or are in a wheelchair.
The group meet on Wednesday afternoons with sessions organised by Mark Southerton.
The latest developments in the indoor bowls hall created ramp access, which allows the Bradshaw Buggies easy access to the green.
The club always welcome new members and you don’t have to be in a wheelchair, just turn up on a Wednesday at 2pm.
λ The King’s Lynn Sport Relief mile took place at Lynnsport last Sunday with lots of people taking part.
This is the third Sport Relief mile event run at Lynnsport, with each one being better than the last.
Hopefully, lots of money will have been raised for such a good cause.
