Angaston Bowling Club last week received news of a $200,000 State Government grant.
The club was successful in its application for funding through the 2019-20 Community Recreation and Sport Facilities Programme.
The funding will be used for the installation of playing surfaces and club rooms at the club’s new site on Valley Road.
This grant will help Angaston Bowling Club to get their exciting new headquarters underway which will be purpose-built to cater for bigger competition and will also have the capacity to host large community functions.
Club president, Ian Cockroft was thrilled to hear the club’s application had been successful. “This is extremely good news for the Angaston Bowling Club,” he said.
“It is a major step taken towards achieving the goal of a new facility which will be utilised by the whole community.
Mr Cockroft said the club’s treasurer, Neville Smith had been working on this project for about 20 years.
“So you can imagine he is ecstatic!” Mr Cockroft said.
“We have in the past, been restricted with membership growth, holding finals and larger tournaments due to only having one green.
“This expansion will attract more bowlers to the Barossa for tournaments and hopefully state/regional events.”
