The Goderich Lawn Bowling Club is folding.

President Kevin Rumig  estimates they had over 100 members years ago when they had a double green.

But that’s now dropped to seven members and it’s not enough membership to cover maintenance of the green and the various other expenses.

He says, “We tried for a long to to build it up a little bit, but just couldn’t seem to get the people to come out and the older ones were, unfortunately , not able to bowl anymore.”

Rumig says it’s a difficult decision because the Goderich Lawn Bowling Club is over 100 years old.

Rumig adds the members that still want to bowl will be able to go to neighbouring clubs.
