Tangney Electorate: Rossmoyne Bowling Club
In Tangney, the Rossmoyne Bowling Club will formally celebrate its 60th anniversary with a special dinner to mark this diamond achievement with family and friends. Formed at a public meeting attended by 25 local residents in 1959, Rossmoyne Bowling Club is now home to over 350 active members. The club hosts more than 1,000 visiting players each year for competition and pennant games, and hundreds of people spend time at the club for social bowls, Friday dinners and club events. Club volunteers also give back to their club and to our community by coaching and mentoring local high school students. There were 93 training sessions last year, supporting 650 students from my community, and there are just as many planned for 2019.
I've been so pleased to work with Rossmoyne Bowling Club members to access federal grants for bathroom upgrades to provide better disability access in their facilities, and there is more excellent news today. I'm happy to announce a Safer Communities grant for this club of $4,000 for improved security lighting to give members and visitors safer access to the club and car park.
Congratulations to Rossmoyne Bowling Club members on your 60th anniversary. Your club is well respected in the Perth bowling community, and I look forward to celebrating your very special 60th anniversary with you on Saturday night.
