THE big day has finally come and guess what Moree, we did it!
Shake Rattle ‘N’ Bowl will be here by the end of the year.
Shane and Melissa Williams said they had an absolute headache deciding between Moree and Inverell.
“We thought one town would pick this up much better than the other and make our decision much easier,” Mr
Williams said. The response from the proposal and the tremendous community support even had our politicians taking note with the Premier making a call to Mr Williams saying he was watching what was happening.
“Both towns went to war over this with unbelievable support from both communities so we have decided to build one in Moree and one in Inverell as well,” he revealed.
“Our thoughts are that this would help both towns from an economic and social aspect and would help our business with competitions between the two towns with bowling in the future.
“The building in Moree is not set yet as we have some options on buildings to work through but we plan to have this centre open all going well for the Christmas holidays.
“And one final thing out of all the talks, emails (there were more than 7000 of them), Facebook hits and meetings, it came down to one person in Moree who sold us on our decision to build the two centres.
“It was my talk with Megan Mayo from the PCYC; she is a real asset to the Moree community.”
