In 2019 Boscombe Cliff Bowling Club (BCBC) invited a group of 8 year olds from Pokesdown Community Primary School to come to try bowls. They liked it so much that their teacher arranged for them to come every Wednesday morning during the summer term, and some also came in the school holidays. One of them, Harry Kingsley, was particularly keen and our coach, Derrick Pavey, said he was a natural bowler. During the winter Harry joined Bournemouth Indoor Bowling Club and had further coaching. Because of Covid he has only just started coming back for weekly lessons with Derrick. Derrick and the whole of BCBC have been so impressed by his play and dedication to the game that Derrick has arranged for him to be presented with a special trophy on Wednesday afternoon, 2nd September.
