Strategic Bowls Study queried


The Strategic Bowls Study did not seem to take members’ opinions into account.
The Strategic Bowls Study did not seem to take members’ opinions into account.

IN response to the report in last week’s edition headlined “Club chiefs pledge to co-operate for sport’s future”, the council announced at its meeting on May 17 that a Strategic Bowls Study will be released in June.

Evidently, this “study” will deal with the future of the Melville and Mt Pleasant bowls clubs.

How can this study be viable when there has been no consultation with club members, the ratepayers and residents affected?

Consultation is essential for a functioning democratic process.

Who is carrying out this strategic study? How qualified are they?

How can the presidents make a statement that relocation is inevitable, without consulting the members?

At the last general meeting the majority of Meville Bowls Club members voted not to be relocated.
