Get Active Truro is designed to get people more physically active and promoting a healthier lifestyle. This year it ran from Monday 6th August to Saturday 11th August and the Cornwall Bowls Alliance along with local bowls clubs, Truro, Chacewater and Mabe Short Mat worked together to man a version of short mat on the Piazza in Truro. Whilst Tuesday (7th) was very wet, the Saturday (11th) (the other days were used by other sports tasters) was a success albeit windy (lifting the mat), much interest being shown by all age ranges in “having a go”. Details of bowls clubs throughout the county were given to a large number of persons who wished to know more . Hopefully this effort will generat more members for our clubs and raise the profile of our sport.
Along with sports, hockey, golf etc. we also had Kernocopis entertarining as well as the Newquay Male Voice Choir which helped to draw in the crowds.
