Kalgoorlie Miner - - NEWS - Leti­cia Laing

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.
