New “friendship” kit and pavilion for March bowls club
THESE are the scenes as Braza Bowls Club opened its new pavilion and unveiled their new team shirts.
Built by builder Martin Stainer, the son of one of the club members, in return for nothing but goodwill, the pavilion is named after him and will give the members a place to ready themselves for matches and hold their committee meetings.
The pavilion was opened last Saturday.
The bowls club - which has two teams in the Cambridgeshire league - is also celebrating their news first kit for as long as anyone can remember, emblazoned with a new emblem of unity.
“Our handshake emblem is about friendship to show we’re united,” said Andrew Heyhoe, a club member.

“We’ve had a few comments from other teams telling us how smart we are so that’s always good too.
“We are completely indebted to Martin for building the pavilion - with some help from his cousin. We only had to pay for materials so we did some fundraising for that.”
