Young sisters Bethany and Charlotte Hailes have delivered a county first for member club Bridgnorth.

Bethany (10) and 12-year-old Charlotte are the first juniors in Bridgnorth to receive the new Shropshire Junior Bowls Award.

Both girls are members of Bridgnorth BC and started playing last year after bowls taster sessions with St Leonards school in the town.

Club Coach Pauline Wilson, who runs Sunday morning classes between 10:30 and 11.45am, said “We are very pleased that Bethany and Charlotte are amongst the first in Shropshire – and certainly the first in Bridgnorth - to get their level one awards.

“It was well deserved and I look forward to taking them through level two."

Other junior clubs in Mid Shropshire are running at Sinclair, Shifnal and Newport, the 2019 link between Charlton and Hadley Learning Community having ended when the children broke up for the summer holiday.
