Waikerie Bowling Club unites for their vulnerable

A dedicated group of Waikerie Bowling Club members are spending more time in the kitchen than on the greens preparing food deliveries for their elderly.

Before COVID-19 social distancing measures were introduced the Waikerie Bowling Club’s older members gathered each weekday morning at 8:30am for social bowls and a cuppa.

But the restrictions mean the club’s facilities have been closed since mid-March and it will be some time yet before normal activities resume.

The Waikerie Bowling Club has about 230 members and about 30 of its members are in their 70s to 90s.

Voting for the Regional Showcase has officially closed. The winner of the People's Choice Award will be announced on 20 November.
