Venue upgrade about to Begin! 

The Gladstone RSL Sub Branch Inc has been approved for $500,000 grant from The Gladstone Foundation to fund an exciting renovation project at the club. Club Chairman Graham McVean said his board is grateful to the Gladstone Foundation for the confidence shown in the board by approving the grant to complete Stage One of a three Stage redevelopment of the clubhouse. “We expect to commence Stage One in July and hopefully be finished by December,” Mr McVean explained. “Stage One will provide a second story above the RSL rooms to provide better facilities for helping Veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder plus a new alfresco dining deck between the greens.” 

Mr McVean added that the club is not able to apply for further funding for Stages Two and Three until the club can acquire the land from the State Government. “This cannot be done until the Gladstone Regional Council agrees to relinquish the Trusteeship. Local State Member Glenn Butcher is very supportive.  We have formally written to the Council seeking their support by releasing the Trusteeship forthwith,” he explained.  

Local contractors and designers have been contracted for the project which will see a second story added to the venue to accommodate the RSL Sub-Branch and a deck extension for alfresco dining along with a new façade.  

The Gladstone ANZAC Bowls & Citizens Club is committed to being Gladstone’s friendliest club and welcomes the local community to come and experience their hospitality!
