The Vogelmorn Bowling Club was built and established in 1947 by a group of local men and women. We are bringing together more knowledge around the people and history of the building and will keep updating our site.
In the meantime, this video clip shows a little of the early stages of the Club’s building from Archives New Zealand. It was used to help us win the Rotary Akina Social Enterprise award in 2015.
It then talks about the energy of the Vogelmorn Community Group who now administer the Bowling Club building and bring you this site.
The future of the wider Green and Vogelmorn Precinct is currently being developed between the Brooklyn Community and Wellington City Council under the Kaka project. We are excited to have been part of a pilot participatory design process for Wellington City, run by Co-op, a local architecture collective.
