Please Donate Your Old Bowls

The Club has a number of sets of very old bowls which are used for Barefoot Bowls events and for new bowlers who want to learn the game. It would be great if we could replace some of them with bowls having a more “modern” bias. If you have recently given up the game or have a spare set rolling around in your car boot, please consider donating them to the Club. Donors please contact John Graham Ph. 0417 034 417

NOTE – coloured bowls preferred. We are only interested in size 3 or smaller, thanks.

Vale Dr Herb Newman

Dear Members,

It is with great sadness that I advise of the passing earlier today of Dr Herb Newman.

Herb was 91 years old and joined the Bowls Section in August 2001 as a previous Glenferrie Hill Recreation Club member.

More recently Herb played bankers at Glen Street and will be sadly missed.

Funeral details to follow once they have been finalised.

Our condolences to his wife Marycath and family.
