Clubhouse rescue team
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.
