Parking boost just the start
THE first stage of a $4.5 million upgrade of St Marys Band Club is expected to be finished early next year.
The club named as its “top priority” an increase in parking capacity.
The project in its entirety includes plans for an al fresco dining area and an outdoor playground.
Chief executive Marlene Shipley said it was important for the club to keep up with the new face of St Marys.
“It is imperative that the club stays relevant with the evolving community and its changing needs, as St Marys will see significant growth in the near future,” she said.
“Increasing the parking facilities is the top priority and forms the basis for the first phase of works currently under way.
“The club’s interior will also undergo significant refurbishment, reflecting on the emerging trend of offering quality food in a relaxed and family-friendly atmosphere.
“There will be a new al fresco dining offering, together with new bars, cafe and lounge facilities.”
The Bandy’s last major renovation was in 2000.
The club is funding the redevelopment itself.
