Lawn bowlers get new lease on land

Five-year lease lapse leads to renewal for Central Saanich lawn bowlers

Lawn bowlers at Centennial Park will get a new lease for the district-owned land where the Hovey Road clubhouse and greens reside. The lease with the Central Saanich Lawn Bowls Club expired in 2007 and went unnoticed for five years. Central Saanich council agreed it would re-sign with the club and add some wording that assures the group conforms to the district’s most recent pesticide practices.

The agreement must be advertised before council can approve the $1, five-year lease. The club has leased the municipal parkland since 1984.
