Club­house res­cue team

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

MEM­BERS of Ferny Grove Bowls Club were moved to help when they saw pho­tos of the in­un­dated bowls club­house at Mun­dub­bera.

Pho­tos ap­peared in the Queens­land Bowler mag­a­zine show­ing the ex­tent of the dam­age and Ferny Grove’s pres­i­dent and vice pres­i­dent vis­ited Mun­dub­bera, putting out a call for trades­men and do­na­tions of build­ing ma­te­ri­als.

Both were forth­com­ing – Bun­nings and CSR pro­vided ma­te­ri­als, and last week­end 10 ex­pert vol­un­teers car­ried out re­pairs to the ceil­ing.

They in­tend to re­turn in a month’s time to work on the walls.

Mun­dub­bera Bowls Club mem­ber Harold Lins­ket said it was great to see such gen­eros­ity, par- tic­u­larly “from peo­ple we’ve only just met”.

Thanks to this as­sis­tance the fu­ture of the Mun­dub­bera Bowls Club is look­ing pos­i­tive for the first time since Aus­tralia Day.
