Sports club bowled over by generosity of Pebley Beach

Players at a Wiltshire bowls club are celebrating a ten year association with motor dealer Pebley Beach.

The Swindon Hyundai and Suzuki franchise holder has been sponsoring Wroughton Bowls Club since 2007. And last Saturday – at the start of the bowls season – MD Dominic Threlfall was invited to bowl the first wood with club president Diane Gibbs.

Dominic reminded players that the club was founded in 1982 – the same year that his family opened their first car dealership – a Lancia franchise – in Wroughton.

Pebley Beach has since moved to a larger showroom in Swindon, but the association remains as strong as ever.

Not only does the firm’s sponsorship help upkeep the immaculate six rink bowling green, but the 100-plus members of the bowls club receive discounts on MoTs and repairs.

“Many of the members of Wroughton bowls club are very loyal customers of ours, and we’re proud to be associated with the club for a tenth year,” said Dom.

Pebley Beach also sponsors the bowls clubs in Cricklade, and in Cirencester where the firm has a Suzuki showroom.

Wroughton Bowls Club fields seven teams in the Swindon & District and  Wiltshire leagues, and game are played most days and evenings throughout the summer months.
