Club updates and news
Leslie BC now recognised as a Dementia Friendly club!
Leslie are proud to announce that we are now Dementia Friendly! The club received a certificate from Ruth McCabe of Dementia Friendly Fife during our opening ceremony in March 2019, and President Davy and Vice President Derek represented the club at the recent Dementia Friendly Community Awards Ceremony held at Caledonia House, Saltire Centre, Glenrothes.
As part of Dementia Awareness Week, the club along with the Station Hotel, Leslie played the Goldie Pairs on Saturday 8th June 2019 dressed in purple tops to celebrate the occasion. Proceeds from the raffle (also purple!) and other donations received on the day were in aid of Alzheimer Scotland and a great day was had by all!
Our 'Phase 2' refurbishments are almost complete, with our changing facilities receiving a full re-vamp before the 2019 season got underway! Here is a sneak peak of the work so far, as we move forward to apply for additional funding for 'Phase 3', upgrading and extending our clubhouse facilities.
Please feel free to lend your support by visiting our facebook page and sharing our post in order to gain as much backing as we require to hopefully enhance our chances of the funding application being successful. Thank you in anticipation... your invaluable support in this matter is very much appreciated!
It is with deepest regret and sad hearts that Leslie Bowling Club acknowledge the passing of a number of much-loved members in 2018/ 2019, including Past President and stalwart member Eric Smart, Dunc Roy, John Sutherland, Sid Sword and Tam Duncan
All will be greatly missed by the club.
New locker room and changing facilities are on their way here at Leslie. The old wooden shed and terrapin were there one day, gone the next. Onwards and upwards for our wee club!
