THANKS to a $33,000 QGC Sus­tain­able Com­mu­ni­ties grant, the Eidsvold Bowls Club has a venue that will ben­e­fit the com­mu­nity for many years to come.

In his ad­dress at the of­fi­cial open­ing of the ren­o­va­tions, Eidsvold Bowls Club pres­i­dent Lindsay Payne thanked QGC for its gen­er­ous sup­port of the project, as well as busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als from the com­mu­nity.

In early Septem­ber mem­bers of the Eidsvold Bowls Club and vol­un­teers and fam­ily mem­bers com­menced work on the de­mo­li­tion and re­moval of the old wooden floor in the din­ing room.

“The club was in­tent on us­ing lo­cal con­trac­tors where pos­si­ble to boost the lo­cal econ­omy,” Mr Payne said.
