BOWLERS at Tweedbank's indoor club now know the score.

For years the Borders club was one of the few indoor bowling centres in the entire country which didn't have an electronic scoreboard.

Skips were often left having to rely on word of mouth and mental arithmetic as teams fought out final ends in national league competitions.

But, thanks to a generous donation from Galashiels company Holequest Ltd, bowlers at Tweedbank now have their very own electronic scoreboard to keep them in the picture.

The official switch-on took place last week in the annual Christmas Game.

And the illuminating scoreboard drew plenty of compliments throughout the day.

Tweedbank Bowling Club secretary Christine Kellett told us: “During each season when playing at other clubs, our members could see that they were among a small number who did not have the bonus of an electric scoreboard.

"This has greatly enhanced Tweedbank Bowling Club."

Prior to the Christmas Game, Craig Roger from Holequest flicked the switch.

He was joined by bowling enthusiast Sandy Batchelor, who is a Holequest director, for the official switch-on.

Christine added: "We would like to thank Sandy and everyone at Holequest for their generosity as such a large purchase would not have been possible for the club to make alone at this time."

The Galashiels company is one of the leading geotechincal services firms in Scotland, covering the whole of the country as well as northern England from its Galashiels base.
