THE BOWLING centre on Exmouth's seafront will not be open to the public until next summer at the earliest.

Speaking to the Journal last July, John Staszewski, architect, and Mark Quinn, owner and developer, hoped the complex would be open at the end of this year.

But Mr Staszewski and Mr Quinn said they had "run into some problems" which had caused a delay in the construction process.

Mr Quinn said: "We have a vision that we will overcome the problems and hope to be open next summer.

"When you embark on a building project of this magnitude, it does not come without any problems."

Mr Staszewski said the delay for the bowling complex to open would be worth the wait once people are given the opportunity to use the centre.

The complex will feature a restaurant on both the upper and lower-floor floors; a children's play area and function rooms with views across the beach which can be used for weddings or parties.

The centre will also include a lounge area for families and a climbing wall for teenagers and adults.

He said: "The large function room caters for more than 300 people. Collectively, with all the (function) rooms combined, we can cater for 900 people.

"It has wonderful views of the Esplanade - an idyllic, picturesque setting for people to have parties.

"Hopefully the opening of the centre will act as a launch-pad for further development in this part of the town.

"We are looking forward to it being completed and people coming down to enjoy the facilities."

Mr Quinn added: "The building will have natural stone and clad with western red cedar which will blend in with the aesthetics of the trees and nature around the building.
