Families to benefit from playgroup upgrade
The Kathleen Day Playgroup has been busy this week celebrating major upgrades to its centre.
Funding bodies, trades services and volunteers were thanked during a ceremony on Monday, which included a tour of the newly renovated areas for stakeholders.
The Play, Grow, Develop Revitalisation Project received Lotterywest, City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder and Royalties for Regions funding grants for renovations, including a new kitchen, floor coverings, new toys and equipment, as well as shade over the outdoor seating area.
The centre has been undergoing renovations for the past 12 months using more than $100,000 in grant and in-kind funding.
KDP project manager Kate Mills said the day was a great opportunity to thank everyone who had worked tirelessly to make the upgrades possible.
“Many people and organisations were involved in making this pro- ject come to fruition,” she said.
“About 95 families use this playgroup on a weekly basis, ranging from babies to kindergarten-aged kids.
“The centre was established more than 30 years ago and this revitalisation means the centre can continue to serve families for the next 30 years or more.”
Kalgoorlie-Boulder Mayor John Bowler and Kalgoorlie MP Wendy Duncan were on hand to unveil new signage acknowledging the contributors.
