New manager has big ideas for Bowlo

17th Aug 2021

Ken Law tried retirement and didn’t like it, so instead
he is now taken on the challenge of a new role of Secretary/Manager at the Guyra Bowling Club. Ken and his wife Cheryl have made Guyra home, relocating from the Gold Coast and say they love the town already and can’t wait to get involved.
Ken has spent his working life in hospitality, including time in a similar role at the Dorrigo Bowling Club, and also as the owner of pubs in Thargomindah and Cunnamulla. What he brings to the job is a warped sense of humour and a head full of ideas that he hopes will see the club become the ‘heart of the town’.
That sense of humour came in handy when, just one week into the job, he found himself in lockdown behind closed doors as a global pandemic spread to the region. On the plus side, while the doors are closed he is spending his time getting to know the community and making plans.
“My first impressions have been really positive and I was pleasantly surprised at how friendly and welcoming everyone has been,” Ken said.
“I have a few ideas already and my plan is to work with both the board and the community to see the club grow.
“Any changes will be slow and steady and I want the members to come to me with their ideas so we can work together,” he said.
“I will be trying to incorporate a Guyra first approach with local businesses, because that will keep money in the town everyone will benefit.”
“I also want to attract more people into the club and see people of all ages get more involved and give them a reason to come in. Everyone is welcome and I want to see the club grow and become a hub for the whole community.”
