Karate moves to hall

Isis Town and Country - - Life -

CHILDERS Karate Club will take over man­age­ment of the Isis Cul­tural Cen­tre for 12 months next year.

Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil said the club will take over the venue on a 12-month trial from Jan­uary 1, though pres­i­dent John Russo has iden­ti­fied a num­ber of main­te­nance works to be re­solved be­fore they of­fi­cially move in.

“We want the whole com­mu­nity to ben­e­fit,” Mr Russo said.

“We can take the op­por­tu­nity to change which nights we run if there’s a clash a lot eas­ier rather than hav­ing to go through coun­cil.”

BRC sport and recre­ation and venues port­fo­lio spokesper­son Cr Lynne For­gan said the ap­point­ment had the po­ten­tial to re­sult in pos­i­tive out­comes for the club, the coun­cil and the com­mu­nity.

“The Karate Club has been a long es­tab­lished and very sta­ble sport­ing group in the Childers dis­trict and has en­joyed an ex­tended as­so­ci­a­tion with the Cul­tural Cen­tre as its train­ing venue,” Cr For­gan said.

“Coun­cil has found through sim­i­lar ar­range­ments with groups tak­ing man­age­ment of venues like the Woodgate Hall and West Street Hall, the com­mu­nity own­er­ship as­pect can re­sults in in­creased use and gen­eral en­hance­ment of fa­cil­i­ties.”
