Bowling green upgrades at Yuleba to pave way for new generation of players

December 6, 2019

Encouraging a young generation of lawn bowlers is the main aim for Yuleba and District Bowls Club, which received $8410 to modify its bowling green, Maranoa MP David Littleproud said today.

“The Yuleba and District Bowls Club will introduce a junior development program to train young people in the community once works on the bowling green are complete,” Mr Littleproud said.

“Paving the way for people of all ages to participate is a great idea because it gets us out there trying new things and, ultimately, brings on a new generation of bowlers.

“It’s a family-friendly environment and the Yuleba bowling group are really motivated to make this family-friendly club expand into the future.

“I’m a firm believer in bringing people together and improving community services across Maranoa because it has a positive flow-on effect on our quality of life and how we support each other – making improvements to the Yuleba and District Bowls Club reflects this.

“Regional communities are the heart of this country and I want to make sure that small capital projects are funded and the community gets exactly what it needs.”

Round 5 of the Stronger Communities Programme has seen $150,000 in Federal Government funding made available to Maranoa community groups.

Project grants range from $2500 to $20,000 to help bolster rural communities.
