Kineton Scouts bowled over with latest donation

SCOUTS from Kineton are bowled over with their latest donation.

First Kineton Scout Group received a free annual membership to Avon Valley Indoor Bowls Club thanks to a £400 donation from Barratt and David Wilson Homes.

The scouts were recently invited to a taster session at the club in Upper Lighthorne, where they received an induction to the game and played a series of matches over a Friday evening.

Neil Jones, group leader at 1st Kineton Scout Group, said: “The children had a great time and were fully engaged. It’s great we have this club on our doorstep and appreciate the support from the developers and our community champion.”

Part of Barratt and David Wilson Homes’ donation also went towards raffle prizes at the bowls club’s regular quiz nights.

Dawn Chapman, treasurer at Avon Valley Indoor Bowls Club, added: “Our club is at the heart of the Upper Lighthorne community and it is an inclusive club for all ages, whether you are new to bowls or have been playing for years.”

Avon Valley Indoor Bowls Club is located close to Barratt and David Wilson Homes’ Aston Grange and Heritage Grange developments, and the sponsorship of the scouts is designed to continue the support for the local community.
