Bowls club to receive a further grant from Ibstock Enovert Trust

A local bowling club has received a generous grant to fund windows & doors refurbishment improvements.


Work to improve Bristol St Andrews Bowling Club in Bishopston, will begin this January, thanks to a £10,860 grant from Ibstock Enovert Trust (IET). 

Work is expected to be completed by the end of February.


The grant will help to improve the building energy efficiency rating and security through installation of new doors plus to replace the dozen dated/worn single pane windows in the lower changing room, upper veranda and x2 windows in the upper function room of which were not included in the major refurb via Enovert Community Trust a couple of years ago.


Associated Windows, a local contractor of Gloucester Road North, Bristol have been chosen to undertake the works.


Glen Wintle, leading the project said: “The club committee and our members are ever so grateful to IET for accepting our grant application, it’s only been a couple of years since the major refurb, so this is a delightful surprise for all. We would like to thank everyone who has supported the process so far, from the application stage, to the club user groups, local councilors and community, who provided letters of support”.


The historic clubhouse was opened in 1924, with an extension added to the building in the 1960s and a skittle alley installed in 1985, a £50,000 major grant was award from Enovert Community Trust in 2017, of which works were completed by Mogford Prescott of Westbury-on-Trym with solar panels also installed via Ecocetera also of Westbury-on-Trym – an official opening followed with a Bowls England team visiting the club in 2018.


Angela Haymonds, Trust Secretary of Ibstock Enovert Trust says: “This is just one of the many community projects Ibstock Enovert Trust has funded through the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF). The scheme offers funding to projects that benefit communities living within 10 miles of a landfill site. Groups interested in submitting projects should visit our website to find out more.


The club currently has more than 60 members and also has provision to host private functions in the downstairs skittle alley and upstairs function room. We will be publishing regular updates throughout the project on our website and social media pages.


  • Ibstock Enovert Trust (formerly Ibstock Cory Environmental Trust) was established in February 2001, in conjunction with Ibstock Brick Limited and Cory Environmental Management Ltd and funded through the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF). To date it has supported over 500 projects and funding totalling over £8.3 million has been approved. IET mainly supports projects in Dudley, South Gloucestershire and Sevenoaks, where Enovert Management Limited has operational sites with links to Ibstock Brickworks. 


  • Enovert (formerly Cory Environmental) is one of the UK's leading operators of waste management and landfill services in the UK. With twelve operational landfill sites, two composting facilities, three waste transfer stations and an anaerobic digestion facility, Enovert manages in excess of 2.3 million tonnes of waste per annum.  Enovert's landfill operations and anaerobic digestion facility generate considerable amounts of renewable energy from landfill and biogas, contributing to the UK's drive to reduce its reliance on fossil fuels. 
  • Landfill Tax and the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) Any waste that is discarded which cannot be reused, reprocessed or recycled may ultimately be disposed of in a landfill site. To encourage society to re-use, recycle, recover more value from waste and use more environmentally friendly methods of waste disposal, Landfill Tax is charged on each tonne of waste sent to landfill. LOs are able to redirect a small proportion of landfill tax liability (currently 5.3%) to support a wide range of community and environmental projects in the vicinity of their landfill sites through the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF). The LCF is regulated by ENTRUST on behalf of HM Revenue & Customs, and the projects are delivered by enrolled Environmental bodies (EBs). Since its inception in 1996, over £1.5 billion has been spent on more than 66,000 projects across the UK. For further information, please visit or see HMRC’s general guide to Landfill Tax.
