Bowled over by big grant
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.
