Lock Stock Self Storage, which operates 16 container-based self-storage facilities across Mid and North Wales, is sponsoring the East Parade Bowls Club in the Welsh resort town of Rhyl. The funds will help the team train qualified coaches and maintain its three greens on the seafront, which are owned by the Denbighshire County Council. In exchange, Lock Stock will receive advertising at the bowl sites, according to the source.
“We’ve got great people here and we’re all working hard to improve the club; but it is also important for clubs like ours to attract other funding, and we’re very grateful to Lock Stock for their support,” said Don Cornes, chairman for East Parade. “It is a challenge to keep the greens in good condition so close to the sea because the wind whips the sand up across the greens, but we work hard and we’re always looking for new members.”
“I was so impressed with what they have been doing and the fantastic facilities they have and, hopefully, our support will help them introduce local youngsters to the game and ensure that the club goes from strength to strength,” said Craig Morris, manager of the Lock Stock Rhyl location.
Lock Stock also supports Johnstown Bowling Club in Wrexham, Wales, and other local organizations and causes across the country, the source reported.
Founded more than 100 years ago, East Parade was the first bowls club formed in the town, its members claim. Today, there are three leagues comprising seven teams and more than 70 members.
Founded in 1999 by brothers Nick and Shon Powell, Lock Stock offers 2,900 self-storage containers across its properties. The family-operated business offers 24-hour access and the sites have video surveillance. It also provides moving services through its “Take Stock” van fleet.
