Our History

A Brief History of the Stuarts Point Workers Recreation & Bowls Club Ltd.

Our Club was born on the 10th November 1959 with a meeting at the Stuarts Point Hall. At that time there was around 60 Houses in the village. John Cooper and Arthur Krumim sold debentures at 5 pounds each to raise capital for the Clubhouse. They were the Clubs first President and Secretary respectively. Sadly both men died in 1961. (John on his way to Grafton Brewery on business).

A Block was purchased from Walter Conn at a “very reasonable price”. The principal workers of the area at that time were Banana Growers and Fisherman. Their symbols became our logo.

The original Club was built in 1960 with the official opening being on 04/02/61
