Birth­day cel­e­bra­tion at the Gin Gin pool

THE pre­dicted week­end rain wor­ried or­gan­is­ers of the of­fi­cial open­ing of the Gin Gin Swim­ming Pool’s new ameni­ties block and 9th birth­day cel­e­bra­tion of the Gin Gin Com­mu­nity Bank.

The re­cent scorch­ing heat had turned the grass brown and with the sud­den down­pour of rain the day broke Sunday morn­ing to re­veal lush green grass pool­side.

Open­ing the cel­e­bra­tion on be­half of Gin Gin Com­mu­nity Bank was branch pres­i­dent Paul Ste­hbens and Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil­lor Wayne Honor.

Mr Ste­hbens said he wanted to bring the cel­e­bra­tion to the pub­lic as it was the com­mu­nity that made it pos­si­ble and has sup­ported the Gin Gin Com­mu­nity Bank.

Stand­ing proud for his com­mu­nity, Cr Wayne Honor ad­dressed the crowd thank­ing them for sup­port­ing their lo­cal com­mu­nity bank.

Cr Honor said the won­der­ful fa­cil­ity wouldn’t have come about with­out a com­mu­nity part­ner­ship, a part­ner­ship which is im­por­tant to our re­gion, not just Gin Gin.

“I want to make spe­cial men­tion of 9th birth­day of the Bendigo Com­mu­nity Bank, they are pos­i­tive help and sup­port for many of our com­mu­nity groups.

“It wouldn’t be pos­si­ble with­out true part­ner­ing,”

The mod­ern fa­cil­i­ties of the pool will ensure ev­ery per­son of the com­mu­nity will be able to com­fort­ably use the ameni­ties with­out is­sues.

With larger rooms and mod­ern fix­tures, par­ents will be at ease clean­ing up af­ter baby.

The bank has re­turned al­most $1 mil­lion back into the com­mu­nity as the profits are not kept in the bank’s cof­fers.

The money will con­tinue to flow through the com­mu­ni­ties to im­prove, up­grade and de­velop new fa­cil­i­ties for the lo­cals.

It’s about the lo­cals sup­port­ing lo­cals and en­cour­ag­ing growth in re­gional ar­eas.

The Gin Gin Pool ameni­ties block would have to be the most mod­ern build­ing in town and the man­ager and staff of the pool are all proud show it off to the re­gion.

Pool man­age­ment would like to ad­vise there will be no pass-out for guests once in­side, and man­age­ment rec­om­mends pack­ing a pic­nic and make the most of the free barbecue fa­cil­i­ties.
