Robertson Aquatic centre has received NSW Government funding to construct an Aquatic Centre containing a 25 metre x 4 lane heated and covered swimming pool with facilities and access for elderly and disabled patrons.
Member for Goulburn Pru Goward today announced the funding injection following a successful ClubGRANTS application.
“I’m thrilled the NSW Liberals & Nationals is supporting the Robertson Aquatic Centre with a $350,000 grant to be spent on the covered swimming pool and facilities,” Ms Goward said.
“This centre will contain a gymnasium and exercise equipment including disability access provisions, solar panels, water tanks, BBQ facilities and a gallery seating over 50 visitors and spectators.
“The disabled will have wheel chair access to the Centre and a hoist erected for entering the pool.
“The Aquatic centre will be the envy of many and will no doubt be enjoyed by the Robertson community and beyond.
“The facility will be an outstanding asset for the community especially for the Robertson & District Swimming Pool Association Inc. and will ensure Robertson has pool and fitness facilities accessible to the whole community for generations to come.”
NSW Deputy Premier and Minister for Hospitality, Gaming and Racing Troy Grant said the NSW Government is proud to support this important project that will contribute to the well-being of so many in the community.
“The NSW Government understand how important enhancing a local facility is to meet the needs of thriving communities,” Mr Grant said.
“The NSW Liberals & Nationals Government is proud to support projects that encourage participation in health and lifestyle activities.
“Part of the focus of the ClubGRANTS scheme in 2014/15 is on the development and enhancement of sport, recreation and cultural facilities in line with the Government’s NSW 2021 commitment to increase participation in sport, recreational, arts and cultural activities and support healthy lifestyles,” Mr Grant said.
ClubsNSW CEO Anthony Ball said that it was great to see the Robertson Aquatic Centre receive $350,000 in ClubGRANTS funding.
“Sport and fitness is an area that every club invests in, so we’re looking forward to seeing the impact that support will have locally,” Mr Ball said.
