Park­ing boost just the start

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

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.
