People in Knowle West are being invited to join a new online club – ahead of a mini golf course coming to their community later this year.
Those who sign up to the ‘FIlwood Fantastic Mini Golf Club’ will get free craft packs sent straight to their doors – so they can build bits of their own mini golf course at home.
There will also be online clubhouse meetings, where members can catch up with each other.
Local artist Megan Clark-Bagnall is the ‘manager’ of the club, which she’s calling “a bit of fun to pass the lockdown time”.
“I’m finding the evenings and weekends particularly hard at the moment, so this is designed to be something fun,” she says.
“I hope it will help people feel more connected during this trying time, and provide a bit of colour and comfort into the lockdown days.”
Megan, who says she’s a massive fan of mini golf herself, is hoping the club will bring the fun of the sport to people’s homes and gardens.
She is asking: “Is it possible to play a whole round of mini golf without even leaving your house?
“Can our neighbours inspire us with top tricks for creating exciting obstacles out of old bits of junk?”
The club is funded by the Filwood Fantastic project at Filwood Community Centre, which is all about creatively enhancing Knowle West.
An actual mini golf course will be installed at the community centre later in the year – and it’s hoped Megan’s club will get people excited about this.
Local organisation re:work, working with local young people, will be installing the mini golf course in the centre’s courtyard.
