The Partnership aims to engage schools, social welfare organisations, and a host of other clubs in getting people active and meeting up to play bowls to improve their physical and mental well-being.
The Partnership will make a contribution to the costs of coaching courses and safeguarding training to all participating clubs and is looking for the support of the bowling population to run a Fairhaven Bowls Academy throughout the season.
It is appealing for volunteer coaches to come forward so they can be qualified and vetted in time for the start of the new season in April.
Spokesman Bill Hannigan said: “We need an army of volunteers to help run sessions throughout the season for beginners aged five and over.
“Each coach will have to undertake to pass a nationally recognised qualification, run by Coach Bowls. Volunteers must be aged 18 and over and all courses fees will paid for by the Partnership.”
Ian Brookes said: “The project is going to focus on increasing engagement in bowling activities across the borough with a particular focus on bringing younger people into bowling. We will be looking at schools engagement with the possibility of a junior bowling competition in the future.
“We are excited about this project and the work we are looking to do with the local bowling clubs and hopefully we will get some local bowlers who would like to be part of this exciting project.”
