“This project has been delivered in partnership with Communities for Children, thanks to funding through the Drought Communities Program,” said Jane Redden, Narromine Shire Council’s General Manager.
“The Drought Communities Program (DCP) is funded by the Australian Government and aims to deliver benefits to drought affected areas,” said Mrs. Redden.
“We would like to thank the Australian Government for their support through the DCP which has enabled us to run these Family Fun Days and thanks also to Communities for Children and Aquawest Narromine for their valuable assistance and for helping the locals stay cool.”
“This project fits in with our Community Strategic Plan objective of ensuring that the Narromine and Trangie swimming pools are accessible, affordable and provide a range of modern facilities for all ages and those with limited mobility,” she said.
