Busselton Water bowled over the community last week after the business rolled out seven sets of bowls for two new programs.

The business donated the bowls sets to Busselton Bowling Club as part of the club’s two new programs, Junior Bowls and Bowls for the Disabled.

Georgiana Molloy Anglican School Year 10 students were the first to test out the bowls as part of their physical education class.

Busselton Water chairwoman Helen Shervington said the utility was thrilled to support the club through its community grants program.

“Like us, Busselton Bowling Club has a strong sense of community — showcased particularly through these two new programs,” she said.

Junior Bowls program co-ordinator Helen Paganoni was thrilled with the support and said it helped the club make the sport more accessible to young people.

Georgiana Molloy Anglican School Year 10 student Macklin O’Reilly said he had enjoyed learning new skills.

“It’s something a little bit different and fun,” he said.
