Break-in re­ported at the Gin Gin Bowls Club

Isis Town and Country - - NEWS -

some­time be­tween the hours of 10am and 6am be­tween Au­gust 15-17.

Mr Lo­gan said the club was made up of vol­un­teers and re­plac­ing the equip­ment would be dif­fi­cult for the small club.

“A lo­cal lady kindly do­nated a hedger which we are very grate­ful for and we all thank her for the gen­er­ous gift,” he said.

There has been a num­ber of in­ci­dents in and around the Gin Gin area in re­cent weeks of van­dal­ism and break-ins.

Con­sta­ble Michael Salis of the Gin Gin Po­lice said of­fi­cers were no­ti­fied of the in­ci­dent at the bowls club and were con­tin­u­ing their in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

“If mem­bers of the pub­lic saw or wit­nessed any­thing, I en­cour­age them to come for­ward,” Con­sta­ble Salis said.

The club re­lies heav­ily on the ded­i­ca­tion of its team of vol­un­teers and ac­tive mem­bers.

The club hosts a num­ber of so­cial events and ac­tiv­i­ties to raise funds to keep the bowls club op­er­a­tional.

The club has one paid worker, that be­ing the greens keeper and it’s money well spent as the green is in per­fect con­di­tion.

“Some might say it’s not a sport, but it’s a great place to make friends and be so­cial,” he said.

The club has a free roll up ev­ery Fri­day from 3pm.
