Volunteers at a county bowls club are celebrating after successfully gaining their Club Mark accreditation.

Cowpen and Crofton Welfare Bowls Club were given the award, which is a national quality standard for community sports clubs.

The accreditation will help to improve coaching and competition opportunities for members, provide better safety and welfare arrangements as well as better advertising and promotion within the local community to attract new members.

Kevin Wylie, from the club’s volunteer working group, said: “Gaining Club Mark accreditation will help this club build for the future and ensure the club represents the community in a fair and equitable manner.”
