Saturday 27 August 2016 was the 'nation-wide' day set by 'Team GB' for sporting events to celebrate the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
Rykneld Bowling Club had previously registered with 'Team GB' - who publicised our 27 August bowls coaching event on their website.
This attracted numerous members of the public who were interested in crown green bowling - but had never heard of our club.
Contact details were taken by Richard Knowles and are being followed up.
The group photograph below shows a few of the local residents who turned up for the coaching session.
