Plan for new club at Lennox

A STEERING committee has six months to sort out a new name, new members, a new constitution and licensing to reopen the bowling club at Lennox Head.

Chair of the committee, Pip Carter, said an application had been sent to the NSW Department of Fair Trading for a new name following the closure of the Lennox club by the Sydney-based Ramsgate Group after financial losses.

But he said six months "isn't long" for the administrative process to be completed.

"We've got some tight timeframes, but there is light at the end of the tunnel," he said.

He said community groups would be allowed to use the bowling club building, and Ramsgate has agreed to maintain the greens for three months, but not to bowling standard.

He said when the call goes out for membership of the new club, "we need people to become members".

"And we'll be asking for money," he said.

"The new club won't have any money except for $1000 the Lennox Head Lions Club gave us (for a fighting fund).

"We need to make sure the community supports the new club once it is up and running."

A public meeting calling for members would hopefully be held within the next three weeks, he said.
