Bowling for Success

The Coleraine & District Battalion of the Boys’ Brigade held its first competition of the new session with an outing to the Ten Pin Bowling Alley at the Coleraine Jet Centre. A good turnout of almost 120 boys took part, occupying 20 lanes. Competition between the boys was keen and all involved had a very enjoyable and fun packed evening.
