Bowled over with prizes
Bowling Club members from Olveston and Yate were in for a treat when Specsavers Thornbury provided prizes for the match winners.
Ladies from Olveston and District Bowling Club hosted a friendly match against a ladies team from Yate and, as part of their sponsorship of the match, the team from Specsavers presented bottles of wine to the winners.
The spirit of summer
Kevin Coles, store manager, said: ‘We’ve had the perfect weather for bowls over the last couple of weeks and it’s been great to see the Olveston teams showing off their skills. To get into the spirit of summer, we put some bottles of wine up for grabs for the winning team, which certainly got them into a competitive spirit.
‘I’ve had a go at green bowls myself and it amazes me how the players make it look so effortless – it really is a pleasure to watch!’
Specsavers Thornbury is sponsoring selected game days throughout the year and has also sponsored the Club’s new match board.
