YOUNGSTERS from across West Fife were bowled over at Abbeyview Bowling Club last week.

The annual indoor bowls festivals took place on Wednesday and Friday with more than 200 pupils taking part in the two days – a record number of participants.

The events are supported by the Carnegie Dunfermline Trust, Active Schools and Dunfermline and West Fife Sports Council.

Lindsay Weir, secretary of the sports council, said: "This year, we had record entries for both days with over 200 pupils taking part.

"The quality of bowling was exceptional and we are indebted to the members of Abbeyview Bowling Club who helped at the event and their patience in coaching the young people. We were also assisted by Woodmill S1 pupils on one of the days who were a credit to their school.

"Young leaders and school ambassadors from other local high schools were on hand to support the events, which were a great success."

The Primary 4/5 event was a fun, skills event where pupils had the opportunity to learn the game.

The following Primary 6/7 festival on Friday was a competition and the overall winners were Lumphinnans Primary School.

Foulford PS came second and Dalgety Bay PS finished third.

In order to encourage more juniors to play the game, Abbeyview Bowling Club is running indoor junior coaching for young people aged between seven and 17 on Saturday mornings from September 28 from 9-10am.

Anyone interested should contact the club.
