NUNDLE BOWLO KEEPS ROLLING ON
The bowls green is smoother and the members happier at Nundle Sport and Recreation Club thanks to the purchase of a brand new mower, made possible by the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnerships program.
Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson said the new $9,300 mower has already cut its first blade of grass after the club took delivery of the it earlier this week.
“Bowls is a very popular pastime, particularly for our older residents who find the sport that little bit less taxing while still offering all the social benefits sport can give us,” Mr Anderson said.
“That’s why whenever a bowling club is chasing funding for any project, big or small, I’m always keen to back them.
“Despite not having a dedicated greenskeeper on staff, the volunteer-run Nundle Sport and Bowling Club have been offering up great-looking greens for years, which is an achievement unto itself.
“What they needed most to allow them to continue to offer up a good surface to play on, was a new mower, and I was more than happy to get behind their application.”
Nundle Sport and Recreation Club Secretary Cheryl Sipple said the committee was very excited about the arrival of the mower because it made it easier to maintain the green.
“Our bowlers are very excited to have a new mower. It has improved our green already bringing it up to a good standard and speed,” Ms Sipple said.
“Thank you to the State Government and the Community Building Partnerships program. It is greatly appreciated by our club.”
The Community Building Partnerships program invests in infrastructure projects that deliver positive social, environmental, and recreational outcomes, while also promoting community participation, inclusion, and cohesion.
