Alex “Tattie” Marshall Visit

Yesterday the children from P1-P7  were honoured to have a visit from Commonwealth Gold bowling gold medal winner Alex “Tattie Marshall.

Alex  is a record breaking five times World Indoor Singles Champion and was given the MBE in 2007 for his services to the sport.

Alex started bowling at the young age of eight supported by both his father and grandfather.

Alex answered questions about the sport and his pride at being at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games. He was especially proud that at the end of the games he was the flag bearer. A big thank you Alex from all at Dunbar Primary School. There are two clubs were children can learn in or near Dunbar. Membership for Juniors in Dunbar is only £10 per year.
