The Malvern
Bowling Club


Dear Members,

Well, those that attended the Xmas in August function on Saturday night are simply singing the praises of Penny and her team.    They set the bar high and never fail to deliver.     We were honored to have a couple of our major sponsors (Hocking Stuart and Specsavers Audiology) attend to see what Malvern Bowling Club hospitality is all about and of course it is always great to see one of our life members (Olive Harding) in great spirits.
