Fremantle Bowling Club

I tried to write about last night at the bowling club, but the WordPress app ate my words without saving a draft. I’d had too much beer (and then mulled wine) for the words to have been any good anyway, so no matter.

I’ve started uploading a few photos to Commons, firstly of the Substation building:

And then of the bowling club.

It’s not a particularly interesting building, and none of the members I spoke to seemed very worried at its demise. The new clubhouse will be bigger and better and generally sounds more exciting.

It was lovely hanging out with the people there, and hearing their stories about the history of the club.
