Vision and foresight looking after Yamba's future

CONGRATULATIONS to CEO Phil Boughton, president Ian Lauder and the Board of the Yamba Bowling Club for having the vision and foresight to invest in a leisure centre at the bowling club.

Thank you for including me in the official opening on Tuesday night. I felt privileged and humbled by the invitation.

With the freshly renovated Boardwalk Bar, the bowling club is certainly investing in Yamba's future, thus making our bowling club a leader in the industry.

This $3m investment includes an 18-hole mini golf course, a traversing wall and a four-lane, 10-pin bowling alley and will provide entertainment for people of all ages to enjoy 364 days of the year, rain, hail or shine.

The leisure centre will also enhance the visitor experience to Yamba, offering more activities and fun for our tourists and also give us locals a place to hang out and have loads of fun with our friends and family.

If you haven't had the opportunity of visiting the new-look bowling club, I encourage you to go along, pick up the mini golf club or the bowling ball - you won't be disappointed.

Sue Hughes, president Yamba Chamber of Commerce
