Offer made for bowling centre

The Newton Stewart Community Indoor Bowling Club submitted an offer on June 17 to purchase the Indoor Bowling Centre in Minnigaff, although they have received no response yet.

The offer was made at the reduced price.

Club spokesman Bill Murdoch said: “After various setbacks, including a two-and-a-half month delay getting a bank account, things now seem to be coming together for the group. The business plan has been sorted out, and the next step is sending out letters in order to collect the money pledged for the debenture scheme. The main issue remaining is getting the required mortgage.”

Bowling Centre owner Murray Findlay said: “The property is on the open market and will continue to be marketed.”
