Callington Bowling Club


Funding Opportunity

Opening of the Green 2018

Callington Mayor and Portreeve Mark Smith was the very welcome dignitary to roll the first bowl of the 2018 season and thus officially open the green. A competitive fifteen end of bowls were played by the 30 members in attendance on a very flat, if damp, surface before a sociable tea was taken.


Members of Callington Bowls Club have a further opportunity to enhance club funds by participating in the Cooperative Community Fund. Every £1 spent at the Co-op store in Callington can earn the club 1p.
Follow these simple steps to help the club:
Visit the Co-op and obtain a Co-op membership card.
Log on to the Co-op web site and select Callington Bowls Club as your preferred charity.
Visit the Co-op frequently and purchase your groceries and other items there.
As well as earning the club 1% of spend, you yourself also earn an additional 5% dividend.

Why not purchase all your Christmas spirits at the store?

All funds obtained through this partnership will be spent on renovating the holding wall between the upper and lower carparks.


Tesco Award

Callington Bowls Club would like to thank Tesco and the Tesco customers for awarding the club £1800 as part of the Tesco Bags of Help scheme. The money will be spent on improving the club's training equipment, with items such as a new indoor short mat, outdoor green surround, target bowls mats, bowls rebound discs, and new coloured sets of junior bowls.

Pictured below is Mr. Alan Woolacombe, Tesco Community Services Manager, presenting the cheque to Chairman Bill Rowan and Treasurer Di Jackson, with Fund Raising Coordinator Graham Body.


During the tea, East Cornwall Bowls League Secretary Roger Ellard presented the ECBL League Winners Trophy to Callington President Mike Pearce, adding that this was the first time that Callington had ever won the league in its 65 year history.

The next event at the club will be an open day on Sunday 22nd April from 10.00 to 4.00 where members of the public are freely invited to try out the sport of bowls. All equipment is provided.
