The Otago Community Trust has donated $20,000 to the Alexandra Bowling Club to upgrade their facilities to help meet increasing demand for the space from local community groups.
Bowling Club President Graeme Allison said “We are busy raising funds and are very committed to seeing the project come to fruition. The needs of the users of the clubs have changed since it was last improved in the 1980’s, we want to keep up with local demand with a great facility”
The club hosts a large number of sporting and community groups including the local snooker club and the Alexandra Cricket Club. These groups use the Club as their headquarters and base for meetings and gatherings.
The donation will support work that will see the lounge area doubled in size and refurbished carpets, curtains and the addition of air conditioning. The Club has been in existence since 1909 and is maintained by 90 volunteers.
Otago Community Trust Chairperson Stuart Walker said “The Trust sees this as a real investment in local facilities; the Club has more than 178 members, not to mention all of the groups that can use the facility for meetings and functions”
