THE new bowls co-ordinator at Penrith Leisure Centre is JANICE GOWER, who today begins a series of fortnightly articles for the Herald.

Janice comes from a strong family bowling background and started playing crown green while still at school. She then got hooked on the indoor game and the rest is history. She has represented England for the past six years and qualified for the world championships four out of the last five years.

She is one of the leading women on the professional bowls circuit and is one of the most recognisable bowlers from the indoor TV circuit where she both bowls and turns her hand to commentary.
