Birth­day bash time to splash

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

MT DRUITT pool is turn­ing 40.

Black­town Coun­cil will cel­e­brate with a mas­sive 40th birth­day splash from 11am on Satur­day.

With pool in­flat­a­bles, jump­ing cas­tles, mar­ket stalls, and even an Aqua Zumba class, the event will be jam-packed with en­ter­tain­ment for ev­ery­one.

Res­i­dents can also cre­ate history on the day by tak­ing part in the Swim-a-thon chal­lenge.

Com­mu­nity rep­re­sen­ta­tives and mem­bers of Rooty Hill RSL Swim Club will swim laps of the pool, aim­ing to reach 40km.

To help out, jour­nal­ist Jil­lian McKee swum two laps of the 50m pool last week.

So far, 9.5km have been swum in the lead-up to the big day.

Black­town Mayor Stephen Bali said: “Mt Druitt Swim­ming Cen­tre has al­ways been at the heart of the com­mu­nity, and 40 years is a fan­tas­tic achieve­ment.

“I en­cour­age the com­mu­nity to come along and cel­e­brate this mile­stone with us.”
