Weekdays 9am to 3pm
Bowling League $10
Once again, we’re starting up the Sunnyfield Bowling League to see who the kingpin of Maitland will be. Each week we’ll play a game, record our scores, share some laughs and at the end of the term we’ll host an event to announce the kingpin of 2023. Covered shoes are essential. Please pack your morning tea and lunch.
Food tastes better when coated in a tasty jam or a flavour-packed spread. On this jam-packed day, we’ll spend the morning refining recipes and the afternoon creating delicious spreads to package up and sell at a local business. Take a jar home to enjoy with family and friends as well.
