MEDOWIE SPORTS & COMMUNITY CLUB
EXCITING NEWS ..... Construction starting August 2017
Construction is about to proceed on The Medowie Sports & Community Club. This Club has been in planning for over thirty years, originally a vision of the late Councillor Ken Muir “to have a community meeting place”
The Club will form a community owned and operated focus for Medowie families, social & sporting groups, providing an environment in which families can relax over a meal in a safe and friendly facility or just take a break with friends, keeping up with local gossip whilst watching the excitement on the Bowling Green or a meeting place for various sporting and community groups
Local groups such as the RSL, the CWA, the Lions Probus will find freely available meeting rooms, with secure storage for those bits and pieces that they are forced to lug to meetings now.
The Medowie Sports & Community Club is nearing realization. PROGRESS SO FAR (August 2017)
All Development Approvals have been obtained
Port Stephens Council has allocated funds to complete the project
Port Stephens Council has commissioned project managers to produce working drawings and invite tenders to construct.
Work has commenced on site
Port Stephens Council has entered into a lease arrangement with the Medowie Sports & Community Club.
Exciting elements we plan to include
Good quality licenced "family friendly" restaurant
Additional car parking to not only facilitate the club but provide overflow parking for both Ferodale & Yulong sports grounds

Bowling Club - Recruiting members now
Now that we have the bowling green firmly in our sights he club committee has formed a sub group to oversee the formation and growth of a Medowie Bowling club.
This was in response to the overwhelming requests from the community and will be the “Jewel in the Crown” for the club with the building of the initial bowling green and provision for a second in planning.
This is an exciting opportunity for Medowie and we urge all community members interesting in joining our Bowling to contact us through this website
