Times on Au­gust 16, Bud­get is ‘big busi­ness’ stated that within the 2017/2018 bud­get there was a $60,000 grant for the Pem­ber­ton Golf Club to go to­wards a club house. Yes, a new club house! This is re­ally fan­tas­tic news for Pem­ber­ton and the 50 plus mem­bers of the Pem­ber­ton Golf Club.

These new fa­cil­i­ties (pre­sum­ably with a li­cence at­tached), along with the ex­ist­ing ex­pan­sive sport­ing club build­ing, will surely en­dear sports par­tic­i­pa­tion for this small, yet pro­gres­sive and well-rep­re­sented town­ship into the fu­ture.

Not too sure what the sports clubs and par­tic­i­pants who have to put up with the run-down change room and toi­let fa­cil­i­ties at Rea Park, the Col­lier Street grounds and the Man­jimup Re­cre­ation Oval precincts would be think­ing af­ter read­ing the good news story for Pem­ber­ton.

Maybe the hun­dreds of peo­ple en­gaged in sport­ing pur­suits in Man­jimup at the above men­tioned re­cre­ation fa­cil­i­ties, es­pe­cially in the cur­rent win­ter con­di­tions, could hold their pa­tience for an­other year un­til the 2018/19 bud­get or 2019/20, 20/21 bud­get.
