A refresh of ladies’ bathrooms, meeting rooms and storage space is planned at Tamworth City Bowling Club thanks to $70,000 from the New South Wales Government’s Stronger Countries Communities Fund . Club treasurer John Rouvray said the funding would allow the club to be freed from the growing financial burdens of maintaining old facilities and upgrading club equipment. “This funding allows us to modernize the existing, very old facilities that we have. We are also tearing down walls to improve storage capacity,” Rouvray said. “The main thing this is going to allow us to do is to modernise, to stop wasting money on repairs and to create a facility that will be used by the wider community. The club is increasing its membership – we are up by around 1150 – and we are still trying to expand our social side of the club, particularly with the outdoor area Membership at Tamworth City Bowling Club has more than doubled in the last seven years thanks strong leadership and forward thinking from the club’s board,” said Anderson. “The club is a real community asset and it’s great to see so many members taking full advantage of the greens and the hospitality offered by the club.” This funding will enhance the club’s existing amenities which have not been updated since the clubhouse was built all those years ago. Problems with old plumbing and sinks set too low and lack of proper storage will be a thing of the past once the renovation is complete.” Mr. Anderson encouraged the community to make full use of the facilities offered at the Tamworth City Bowling Club. “The clubs have been doing some tough stuff over the past few years, so I encourage the community to support our local clubs by going to a game of barefoot bocce on the weekends,” Anderson said.
