Matamata Chronicle - - News - By LAURA McLEAY

The Mata­mata Re­turned and Ser­vices’ As­so­ci­a­tion Cit­i­zens Bowl­ing Club is scout­ing for new mem­bers. Whether peo­ple are in­ter­ested in in­door bowls or keen to meet new peo­ple, or­gan­iser Bev Hewlett as­sures they will al­ways have a great time.

Mrs Hewlett has been in­volved with the club for about six years and would love to see some new faces around.

‘‘ Af­ter some of our mem­bers have passed away, we would love some new mem­bers to come and join in our friendly at­mos­phere,’’ she said.

‘‘Bowl­ing is good be­cause you are amongst other peo­ple and the so­cial side of it is good.’’

The club, in Ngaio St, runs in­door bowls once a week on Mon­days from 1pm to 3pm.

Mrs Hewlett

said more play­ers helped the games be­cause the teams could be big­ger.

‘‘We want to keep bowl­ing go­ing. We would not want to have to stop play­ing be­cause we don’t have the mem­bers,’’ she said.

In­door bowls is open to peo­ple of any age. Mrs Hewlett would like to en­cour­age any­one to go along and have a look.

Just turn up at the RSA build­ing or ring Mrs Hewlett on 888 5055 for more in­for­ma­tion. Games cost $2 per per­son.
