A SIGNIFICANT facelift is on the cards for the Croppa Creek Bowling Club, thanks to a $160,000 funding roll from the State Government, Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall announced today.

Mr Marshall said the NSW Stronger Country Communities Fund grant would help the club create a child safe play area, upgrade lighting on the tennis courts, bowling green, football field and clubhouse as well as an upgrade to the water supply.

“The Bowling Club is an important social meeting place for the whole Croppa Creek community and wider district,” Mr Marshall said.

“Locals and visitors alike will enjoy the new lighting and feel at ease knowing their children are safe to play outside in an enclosed area.

“The new LED lighting on the tennis courts will make a huge difference and ensure they can be used of an evening, when conditions are much cooler, especially in summer.

“Future-proofing water supplies for the club, with the installation of rainwater tanks, will save money but also keep the greens looking good and be better for dishwashers and other whitegoods in the club.

“Well done to President Toby and the committee on securing the funds and all their work keeping the club going for the community.”

Croppa Creek Bowling Club President Toby McDouall said the community was grateful for the support from the State Government.

“With these ongoing improvements to our local, we can keep the doors open for community events and welcome new families to the district,” Mr McDouall said.

“Our main goal is to increase the usability of this fabulous community facility, increase the use of sporting areas and increase community cohesiveness.

“The grant will mean that night tennis and touch football can restart, families know they can bring their children to a safe space and use both the sportsground and club for meals.”

The club is working with Gwydir Shire Council to deliver the upgrades, which will start in the coming weeks.
