Lawn bowls has returned after the coronavirus pandemic stalled the popular activity for several months.

The Harvey Bowling Club opened this month and members were delighted to be back on the greens.

Club president Robyn Coleman said everyone was excited to be able to play again.

“The bowling club is a great community hub,” Mrs Coleman said. “People of all ages enjoy the facility, our youngest is 11-years-old and our eldest member is nearing the age of 90.”

Club secretary Michele Stanton said she was happy about the recent renovations that improved accessibility to the club.

“The club is disability friendly and it makes me feel very welcomed,” Mrs Stanton said.

The bar has also been opened, creating excitement among the 200 members at the club.
