As we move towards the beginning of a new season of bowling, I am looking for volunteers to help in various activities.

Grounds maintenance:

Trim bushes and maintain plants 1-2 Spring pruning and monthly maintenance
Landscaping and grounds maintenance 1-2 As needed

Green maintenance:

Currently, Brian Larkin, Mick Banks and Rob Matthews do a great job of equipment maintenance, greens fertilising and cutting and maintaining the bowling greens, but I would like to identify additional people who can help in these areas in the event of vacation or sickness.

Bench Installation

I have been successful in recruiting Graham Fowler to oversee the reconstruction of the benches which we need to complete by April 15 if possible.

To achieve this, we are looking for volunteers able to use drills and wrenches.

Volunteers will be grouped in teams of four and we hope a team can complete one bench in under 3 hours. With enough teams we can get the job finished over 2-3 days.

Please let me know by email if you are able to help.


Andrew Adamson and Graham Fowler


Please add your availability during the period up to April 15 in case you’re away. We are looking to begin the project in better weather and need to know who to call.

Teams consist of four people. Two to drill concrete for the third frame and two to attach the plastic bars to existing frames.

Instruction: Graham will offer coaching, help and advice to all teams.

We will need heavy duty concrete drills and bits. Please let me know if you have one we can borrow, even if you can’t help.

Work may involve lying on your back or leaning over. Think of it as exercise!
