Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Front Page -

Mem­ber for Ovens Val­ley Tim McCurdy re­cently met with Yar­ra­wonga Aquatic and Re­cre­ation Cen­tre rep­re­sen­ta­tives to dis­cuss the con­tin­ued push for an in­door pool in Yar­ra­wonga.

Ac­cord­ing to the group Mr McCurdy said, “Yar­ra­wonga is the most suit­able lo­ca­tion in Moira Shire for an in­door pool”.

Mr McCurdy gave his strong sup­port for YARC’s con­tin­u­ing work to­wards the build­ing of a cen­tre.

He told the group he was im­pressed by the ex­tent of com­mu­nity back­ing for the facility, with more than 550 paid up mem­bers of YARC and more than 1,300 peo­ple respond- ing to a sur­vey last year pro­vid­ing over­whelm­ing sup­port.

Mr McCurdy noted, in par­tic­u­lar, the ben­e­fits of an in­door pool for the health and well­be­ing of the Yar­ra­wonga and dis­trict com­mu­nity, in­clud­ing chil­dren and the el­derly.

“All ef­forts should be made to en­sure such an im­por­tant com­mu­nity re­source is de­liv­ered,” Mr McCurdy said.

“And a cen­tre will help boost lo­cal eco­nomic growth through more tourism and en­cour­ag­ing more peo­ple to retire to Yar­ra­wonga.”

Mr McCurdy en­cour­aged YARC to con­tinue with its ef­forts and of­fered use­ful ideas on the most ef­fec­tive steps to take from here on.
