The cheque is in the mail for the bowlers

July 4, 2024

Things are looking up for the bowlers at the Oberon RSL, with a grant delivered last week by Member for Bathurst, Paul Toole.

This was a NSW Government Community Building Partnership (CBP) grant of $12,251 and followed a grant of $160,000 a few years ago to allow a brand new synthetic green to be installed.

"It's great to have been able to once again meet with members at Oberon RSL to inform them of the CBP grant," Mr Toole said.

"The funding will be used for the purchase, replacement, and installation of six seats situation around the bowls green. It also means the club will be able to put in seven new scoreboards around the playing surface which will also help give the area a facelift."

"Bowling is an inclusive sport that encourages improved fitness, greater well-being and social interaction," he said.
