Federal Member for Calare, Andrew Gee today announced $31,500 for the redevelopment of the Wellington Bowling Club greens made possible under Round Two of the Federal Government’s Community Sport Infrastructure Grants program.
Mr Gee said the Wellington Bowling Club was a central part of the local community with a membership of over 200 bowlers.
“This funding will bring new life to the Club’s three greens including two for lawn bowls and one for croquet,” Mr Gee said.
“The redevelopment of the greens will allow for better bowling conditions not only for local members, but the many bowlers and croquet players who visit from out of town.
The Community Sport Infrastructure grant program was launched by the Federal Government in August last year, enabling sport and community organisations to apply for grants up to $500,000 to upgrade sporting infrastructure in 2018-19. The program is managed by Sport Australia, the Australian Government’s leading agency for sport and physical activity.

The Wellington Bowling Club also received a $5,000 Volunteer Grant to help purchase a commercial dishwasher and defibrillator.
