Nelson’s Savoy Lanes set for new life

After months of renovations, the Nelson Regional Sports Council is excited to reopen the Savoy bowling lanes later this month.

After months of renovations, the Nelson Regional Sports Council is excited to reopen the Savoy bowling lanes later this month.

With the news of keeping the much-loved facility alive, the community came out in spades to help with all things necessary to get the place ready for a new season. They even offered up bowling shoes, trophies and all sorts of bowling necessities. An indoor wheelchair ramp down to the pits has been installed while the outdoor entrance ramp is to be installed as soon as possible.

“The local sentiment has been wonderful with many positive comments thrown our way about keeping the local place and sport alive — and their own renewed desire to play once again themselves,” said Kim Palfenier from the sports council.

“Much like the Civic Theatre the community really pulled together once it realized there was a need. We hope that the vested interest translates into using the facility throughout the season that maintains it as a viable operation. Time will tell of course. For now we just want to have bowling available for all to enjoy.”

League bowling will commence the week of September 9 with the fun and festive grand re-opening event taking place on September 14 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

An invitation is open for all to come and participate in food, games, prizes and free bowling. Bring the family down and enjoy an afternoon of fun.
