Set in a pretty rural locale the Lockwood South Bowls Club is informal and friendly and without the pressures of the larger clubs

It is, however, on the hunt for more members. If you’re looking for a warm community environment, the club will welcome you with open arms.

After a fire in June 2004 the clubrooms were destroyed but the rebuild resulted in a charming building.

When Division 6 Pennant is playing during the summer months the bowling green accommodates the members. In winter everyone retreats indoors to play carpet bowls.

Two stalwarts of the club, George Manallack and Warren Hoffman, would love to see an increase in membership.

Warren is the reigning club champion and George runner up. During the pennant season delicious afternoon teas are prepared for the players.

Indoor Carpet Bowls are run each Saturday from 1pm. Ladies and gents are welcome. The cost is $5 and includes that cuppa.

Bill Whitbread says members of the public are welcome to come and have a look. You can phone him on 0417 365 658.
