Life members were invited to bowl on the new green first, followed by the rest of the members and volunteers who helped make the spectacular new pavilion a reality.

East Shepparton Bowls Club vice president and part of the building committee, Dennis Galt said, “We’ve still got to finish off a few things like fencing and landscaping, but the new green is what everyone is most excited about of course.

“We’ve already had interest from parties to host state competitions which would be awesome for the club and the town.”

East Shepparton Bowls Club has open bowls on Tuesday nights from 6:30pm, allowing people of all skill levels to get out on the green and have a go.
