Monster garage sale at Lismore Heights Bowlo this weekend

LISMORE Heights Bowling Club is having a "monster" garage sale this Saturday, to raise money to develop their clubhouse into a new community venture.

The garage sale will begin at 7am and will offer those out and about on election day an opportunity to snap up a bargain on the way to or from polling booths.

Lismore Heights Bowling Club fundraising committee chairperson Karen Irvin said there will be some interesting antiques avail- able to buy.

There will also be freshly baked goods, pickles and plants for sale, along with the usual garage sale goods and for a gold coin donation, a sausage sizzle and refreshments will also be available.

The bowling club decided to hold a garage sale after the Lismore Heights Bowling Club began the costly process of de-amalgamation earlier this year.

While the club ceased serving alcohol at the bar and pokies and other gaming were closed in June, the green and clubhouse have continued to operate with bowls players bringing their own food, drinks and alcohol.

The Lismore Heights bowling community is hopeful the proceeds from the garage sale will allow them to develop the club into a new facility that will cater for families who live in the area.

Lismore Heights Women's Bowlers president Annette O'Connor said the men's and women's bowling clubs have been overwhelmed by the generosity of the community through donation of goods to the garage sale.

She said the community involvement showed the club still had a place in Lismore Heights.

"The hope of a new community club can only exist with a whole community effort," Ms O'Connor said.

"No-one wants to see the club fall apart."
