THE historic North Perth Bowling and Recreation Club Open Day is this Saturday October 14 from 12 noon.
The Voice caught up with super-friendly club secretary Dean Evans last week as he shovelled sand in preparation for the big day. He said the club was “the social hub of Vincent” set high on the hill in North Perth with “beautiful views and an air of tranquility”.
The only bowling club in Vincent, and the fourth oldest in WA, sits in Farmer Street, off Fitzgerald Street behind Woodville Park – and is next to a tennis club, croquet club, a Mens Shed and a community garden, all beaming out the joys of local engagement.
Mr Evans told the Voice with a chuckle, he has an ambitious plan to try to recapture the 1950’s heyday where the club once had over 500 members. It now stands at 50 bowlers with about 100 recreational members.
All prospective new members – bowling and recreation – are welcome for a cuppa or a drink to celebrate the first day of the new season and meet the sponsors. For more info call Dean on 0428 085 288 or club president Dean Camp on 0458 505 205.
