Camden Haven community encouraged to continue on with projects
Two local community projects on the Camden Haven are continuing to gain momentum as the hard work of dozen of local volunteers begins to pay off.
In Kendall, the local Tennis Club’s ongoing development is going from strength to strength with the further work soon to be undertaken on the Clubhouse.
“For well over ten years now, Wendy Hudson and her dedicated committee at the Kendall Tennis Club have continued to raise funds and undertake significant work at the Club which has seen the installation of new tennis courts of championship standard and a new clubhouse,” Dr Gillespie said.
“The club’s numbers have now grown to 324 members and many local and regional championship events have been held at the complex since the new facilities were opened.”
“Today, I’m delighted to announce a $12,000 grant under the Australian Government’s Stronger Communities programme towards the Clubhouse upgrade including the install of air-conditioning, new equipment and security upgrade.”
The $28,000 project will furnish the new clubhouse with a lounge area consisting of a large modular lounge, cabinet, coffee table and Large Screen TV. The project will also furnish a seating area with 5 tables and 20 chairs along with display cabinets, Championships & Officer Bearer board. There will also be a games area with a pool table and table tennis tables. An office area will also be fitted out with a new computer, printer/photocopier and desk chairs. The project will ensure the clubhouse is air conditioned and have a security system.
As work progresses on the Camden Haven Beach to Beach Riverwalk project, Dr Gillespie also announced $10,000 in funding towards the project.
“There are dozens of local volunteers and suppliers who have put a lot of time, work and effort into building the wide footpath and cycleway that we have seen being constructed to date along the foreshore between North Haven and Dunbogan. This funding will help Beach to Beach Riverwalk Committee purchase additional materials to continue on with the job,” Dr Gillespie said.
