Following the successful transition of Bangalow Bowling Club from the voluntary administrator back into the hands of the board last week, club president Martin Colbert has stood aside.

At a meeting of the club Brian Mackney, convener of the Club Rescue Committee, was elected to the position.

A group of local business and professional people had formed the Rescue Committee in an effort to prevent the club going into liquidation. At the meeting, the club’s board acknowledged the work of the committee, passing a resolution to consult with it on matters of major significance.

In standing aside as president Mr Colbert said, ‘The community has made it clear they want to see change in the club… it is important that the membership and the community now get behind the committee.’

Mr Mackney thanked Mr Colbert for his vote of confidence. ‘There is much to be done, but with the effort of the board working closely with the rescue committee, a much stronger team has been forged.’
