THE smell of great Chinese food and sound of happy patrons will soon be found again at the Warialda Golf and Bowling Club, with Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall last week calling in to inspect the final stages of the $315,000 State Government-funded clubhouse refurbishment.

 

Mr Marshall said the build was ‘sizzling away’ and expected to be finished by the end of this month.

 

“The work undertaken by contractor Meader Construction has brightened the club up and made it a more functional and welcoming community events venue,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“The last five years have been incredibly tough financially for small volunteer run clubs, with the drought drying up household incomes which would normally be spent on playing sport, memberships or going out for a meal.

 

“This project was launched with the specific intent of helping improve the club’s finances so it could keep its doors open.

 

“The new industrial kitchen is finished and Charlie the cook has moved back in and is serving up delicious Chinese dishes from the modern gas cooktops and stainless steel benches.

 

“The addition of white tiles bringing has brightened the kitchen up and assisted with health requirements.

 

“Builders are now in the process of updating the existing men’s and women’s amenities and putting the finishing touches on the children’s play area and board room.​

 

“This has been money well spent. By making these improvements the board has taken a huge step towards securing the long-term financial viability of the club and ensuring it remains a vibrant part of Warialda’s social life.

 

“I look forward to the project being finished and the opportunity for the club to tee-off into a new period of prosperity.”
