THE bowling force was very much with pupils of an Easter Ross primary today as they gave the sport a go on their home patch.

On this special Star Wars Day, the bowling club in Invergordon welcomed 76 pupils from Park Primary School.

Classes from P3, P6 and P7 attended the green as part of the school's Learning Festival 2022.

The pupils were given an introduction to bowls by being split up into four teams and participating in four activities.

These included target bowls, finders keepers, jack delivery and battleships.

The school later offered a "massive thank you" to Bowls Scotland for the help and guidance to run these games and to club members who came to deliver the experience.

The club said: "We hope that some of the kids might consider coming back to the club with their parents, having found out we are not so scary, even with our resident Wookiee."
