Nerang Community Bowls Club
20 Oct | '2021
The Nerang Bowls Club was established in 1993 and is the only community owned and run sporting club in Nerang. The ‘Bowlo’ is where locals gather not only to play lawn bowls but to socialise over a meal and entertainment and to support one another, especially through this COVID-19 pandemic. A few short weeks ago I had the absolute pleasure of presenting a cheque at the clubhouse to upgrade their facilities. The club is the successful recipient of $596,650 from the latest round of the Building Better Regions Fund. I congratulate General Manager Steve Condren, who shed a tear when I called the club, his dedicated committee—Rob, Bob, Pete, Lyn, Rose, Luchica and Maurice—and the wonderful club members for this historic funding in Moncrieff that will serve so many locals. I thank City Heart Task Force executive member and Director of RDA Gold Coast, Estella Rodighiero, for assisting the club with their funding application. I also thank former Deputy Prime Minister, the member for Riverina, and the Minister for Sport, Senator Colbeck, for joining me four months ago on a visit to the Nerang Bowls Club to look over the plans for the clubhouse upgrade. I’m incredibly proud that it is the Morrison Government that has listened to the needs of my community and delivered this funding to benefit the good people of the Nerang community.
