Though bowling will continue, it too would be effected.

"We have an electric shade over the bowls club which can't be used in the meantime," Mr Smith said.

"And, we have no refreshments as anything that required a fridge had to be taken out."

With the telephone line of the Hervey Bay Bowls Club also down, Mr Smith can be contacted on 0418 586 157.
