CARRUM Bowls Club has received $200,000 from the state government for the construction of female friendly facilities.

Labor MPs John Eren and Sonya Kilkenny visited the club to announce the funding, which will be drawn from the state government’s 2018-19 Female Friendly Facilities Fund.

The redeveloped pavilion including new female change facilities provides an opportunity for the club to better cater for female competition bowlers as well as training and barefoot bowls.

“This is a great example of how the Andrews Government is making sport and recreation more accessible, welcoming and inclusive for all Victorians,” Mr Eren said.

“The Andrews Government is giving local communities the facilities they need so more locals can play the sports they love.”

“Congratulations to Carrum Bowls Club, this boost will go a long way to support the growing number of people in  Carrum keen to get involved in local sport and recreation,” Carrum MP Sonya Kilkenny said.

Mr Eren thanked Frankston City Council and Carrum Bowling Club for their commitment and financial contribution to the project.

Cr Kris Bolam from Frankston Council attended the announcement.

Council put in $100,000 to the redevelopment, with the club raising $100,000 of their own.
