Committed volunteers needed

by admin

Bowls is what it is today because of where it came from and those who participated in the past. It’s worth reflecting on what some of the great pioneers of our sport would make of how far we have progressed. Would they be astonished, awestruck, maybe even envious?

With this in mind it really is the duty of Bowls WA to develop and continually build-upon its archive and historical records for the benefit of the sport and the wider community, especially as we transition into the online era. As lawn bowls is an integral part of the social fabric of Western Australia, its legacy should be recorded for future generations.

Bowls WA is looking for some committed individuals who are interested in the history of Bowls in Western Australia to work with Bowls WA Staff on a Volunteer basis.

Under supervision of Bowls WA Staff you will be responsible for cataloguing and detailing this history of sport into an online format.

Can you commit just a few hours of your time each week for scanning and archiving photos and newspaper clippings.

Your remuneration will largely be the satisfaction in knowing you have participated in the preservation and recording of the history of the sport however a Committee honorarium will also be awarded.

To register your interest please contact Aaron Delaporte, Operations Manager at Bowls WA, email aaron@bowlswa.com.au or phone 9340-0800.
