West Bowlo keeps the standard up

WEST Tamworth Sports and Bowling Club will roll into the new year with a brand new flag flying above the green.

The club was in desperate need of a new NSW flag, which flies above every game played at the club.

With the previous flag in tatters, president Bob Hennessey approached the office of local state member Kevin Anderson.

“I was really just making enquiries about how to get a flag,” Hennessey said.

“When I made the enquiry, Kevin (Anderson) said that he would supply the flag for us.”

“It is good to see that he is giving back to the community and great for the club.”

“These flags are not cheap and every bit helps the club at the moment.”

The flag was presented to the club by Anderson in a small ceremony on Thursday afternoon.

Last year the club updated its flagpole from two flags to six, and just in time.

The Wests ladies took out the Number 3 Pennants title at the end of last year and now proudly fly the winning flag on the new pole.

“The new flag and pole mean the club can fly special flags when we have carnivals and special guests like President’s Day,” Hennessey said.

“Kevin has helped the club with some other matters recently as well.

“He has helped us to keep moving forward in tough times for clubs and we appreciate it.”

The club’s greens are under renovation for the next few weeks so the flag will have to wait for its maiden flight.

The club singles will start again after the January long weekend.

Next on the list is a new Australian flag and, after the charity shown by his fellow Nationals counterpart, Barnaby Joyce can likely expect a knock on the door.
