The Coraki Memorial Bowls Club welcomed a $200,000 State Government grant for new synthetic turf at the club.

State MP Chris Gulaptis said the flood had wreaked havoc on the greens at Coraki.

“So, the club decided to future-proof their assets by laying out synthetic greens,” Mr Gulaptis said.

Club president Neil Ryan said the synthetic green would be used for activities including bowling events for all the community as well as the full-time bowlers, charity bowling events and social bowls for retired and aged pensioners.

The ClubGRANTS program reinvests proceeds of pokie taxes back into local community assets.
