A Federal opposition leader Bill Shorten had promised to invest $500,000 towards the Narre Warren Bowls Club roof upgrade project, if elected to government.
The project will see a roof constructed over two of the clubs greens.
The new roof will enable the club to play bowls in a wider variety of weather settings but will also enable the club to expand the use of the greens to include undercover large scale outdoor community events.
This funding commitment matches the Victorian Government’s recent commitment, which brings the total funding to $1 million and ensures the project can be delivered.
