LEVIN RSA BOWLING CLUB

CLARK MEMORIAL GREEN

The entrance 55a Salisbury Street Levin

 

Pictured right, Walter Lett and Maud Lett, [formerly Maud Clark] who Gifted the Bowling Green for the bowlers in 1948. Picture was taken on the opening day in 1950.

 

The RSA wants to sell the Bowling Green and keep the Memorial gates and Avenue !

 

Grandfather WG (Bill) Clark has his plaque along the Avenue.  I wonder what he would say to the Levin RSA  if he was still alive,  I assure you he would insisting for the complete Gift (Koha) back. 

 

The Clark family insists that the complete site as per the Gift for bowlers should stay together as one entity and be returned to the Clark family so they can ensure the Custodianship of the Gift is protected from sale, as from now, and into the future.  We have no problem with the RSA members using the Bowling Greens for recreation and fellowship as this is a healthy and physical pastime.
