A WREXHAM sporting facility may soon feature a creative display made by local schoolchildren.

Coedpoeth Bowling Club's green was scorched by hot weather in 2018, resulting in it not growing back last year.

Since the sun damage, members of the club have been working hard to find funding for a watering system.

Last year they were successful in securing a £10,000 Land Disposal Tax grant to cover the work.

Club secretary Wendy Jones explained: "We had it all planned out and we had someone who had quoted the job.

"Just as he was starting it, lockdown came in - it's been a bit of a nightmare.

"But we're finally at the stage now where he is putting the finishing touches on it.

"Members are very pleased with the watering system, it is vital for the green.

"As part of the system, we have a huge tank and we have decided to put a mural on it.

"We have been talking to the head teacher and art master at a local school and they are thinking that they could help. "We're hoping their children will be able to put a project together during the holidays and in September when they come back we will have a look at their ideas.

"In the meantime we have to abide by the guidelines regarding opening the green.

"It will be open from Monday but only for members and people affiliated with the British Crown Green Bowling Association. "We can only have so many people there at one time and everything must be sterilised."

Details of the mural are expected to be confirmed in the coming months.
