APRIL HOH OUTING TO TENPIN BOWLING – 27th April 2019

We asked Gaie what she would like to do for April, and she chose Tenpin Bowling as she believes she can manage doing this slowly.

We have decided to try Blacktown Bowling Alley this time, as Janetta and Janne went inspecting venues suitable for DBA over the Christmas holidays.

DATE:           Saturday 27TH April 2019

TIME:            10:30AM

PLACE:         Shop 4011 Westpoint
17 Patrick Street, Blacktown NSW 2148

There is bus parking area on top level of parking.

Located in Westpoint Shopping Centre, ZONE BOWLING Blacktown has 24 bowling lanes, and a delicious menu with food and drink offerings, perfect for the whole family! There are also other good food facilities within Westpoint if wished.

PRICE: Bowling $7 + Lunch + Coffee - $25 - $30 for the day should be enough.

If you need to be picked up by bus please contact Janne on 0432 570 210 or janneb@iinet.net.au as soon as possible, so that you don’t miss out on one of the buses. 

Volunteers please phone Janne on 0432 570 210 to let her know if you are available to assist us, it is helpful to have more one to one assistance for each deafblind person.
