We are excited to report that new diving blocks will be installed at Drummoyne Pool over the 2018 winter break, following the successful approval of a $10,000 grant to Drummoyne Swimming Club under the Federal Government’s Stronger Communities Program.
The City of Canada Bay Council has agreed to fund the balance of the cost to purchase and install the diving blocks as part of its $250,000 Capital Works program at Drummoyne Swimming Centre over the winter period, which also includes a major refurbishment of the bathrooms.
The major investment in new diving blocks and changing rooms will be huge benefit to community users of the pool, including school swimming carnivals and Drummoyne Swimming Club.
We would like to thank Craig Laundy MP and Mayor Angelo Tsirekas for their generous support of this important community facility.
