The Riverside Indoor Bowls Club (RIB) has had a very busy month. They attended the Armed Forces Day, on Middlefield Lane and it was very successful for the Gainsborough Town Council and the RIB’s members and many other charities. The town council made it a glorious day for the community and their efforts were rewarded by the 2,000 who attended to see the re-enactments, child displays, an act of remembrance, display of military vehicles, entertainment and children activities. The club had two tables and as well as selling items to raise funds, they spoke to a lot of people about their aim to bring indoor bowls back to Gainsborough. People also tried out their skills at playing outdoor bowls on the Middlefield /Marshalls Sports Field, including small children. It was good to see their enthusiasm.
It was the Corringham Primary School fayre on Friday 5th July, where members were in attendance and sold goods and raffle tickets for the grand raffle and had a good chat to people. Another event on Friday 19th July was attended at the Blues Club, where a fun quiz was held and supported by indoor and outdoor members. It was fun and very competitive with many prizes.
Please support RIB in their latest exciting project to build a new indoor bowls facility, to encourage more of the community to become active and to have a go at enjoying this fantastic sport. The club promote friendship and it makes no difference if you have never played bowls before. This new project will involve the group working with other community groups and sporting clubs and people are invited to get in contact to help.
The next fundraising event will be on Saturday 31st August, at the Meynell Kindergarden Fete, Laughton, from 11.00am. There will also be another table-top sale, their fourth, at Morton Village Hall in September.
