A four-year project to install new shades around Kingswood Sports Club's bowling greens was reduced to just one month following a government grant.
The club’s general manager, Nathan Lowe, said the $10,000 grant was received through the state government’s Local Sport Grant Program.
“The project was going to take four years of part funding from the men’s bowling club and Kingswood Sports Club,” he said. “However, with the grant of $10,000 being approved plus $4,000 each from men’s bowling club and Kingswood Sports Club, we went ahead with the project and once the shades arrived on-site the bowlers completed all the work within a month.”
A special lunch for those who assisted in completing the project was arranged at the club for July 25, attended by Penrith MP Stuart Ayres who presented the bowlers with a collage of the works completed at the club.
