Employee of the month
The club reintroduced the Employee of the Month award to honour our staff that spend long hours behind the scenes to prepare and maintain our fields, buildings and serve you ice cold drinks!
Blairgowrie Spar generously sponsored a R500 gift voucher for the winner each month!
With this we salute the hard work of our staff and create a platform for the members to get to know the familiar faces a bit better.
William is a familiar face on the bowling greens, behind the lawnmower, meticulously preparing the greens for the bowlers. Bowling greens are the most expensive playing surface and since William started working on our greens we have seen a marked improvement in the conditions and subsequent grading of the greens. Without his dedication and hard work this will be not be possible.
William grew up in Soshanguve as one of four children and raised just by his mother. To support the family, he first started working in Hammanskraal, cutting steel door frames, before his career as groundsman started at the Norwood Bowling Club in 2007. Apart from working on the greens he learned the sport of lawn bowls as well. He confirmed with a shy smile that he is a good bowler.
He moved to Craighall Bowling Club and in 2014 was recruited to work at Old Parks. Currently he is staying in Diepsloot and has one daughter who is a teacher. To relax he watches movies on TV and support his team Kaizer Chiefs and would one day like to build a home and return to Soshanguve.
A well-deserved winner for Employee of the Month! Thank you William and enjoy your R500 voucher compliments of Spar Blairgowrie.
