Pas­sion aplenty at our pool

PAS­SION is of­ten a huge driver in de­ter­min­ing how suc­cess­ful a per­son will be in a new busi­ness ven­ture.

Speak­ing with Ben and Amy Golchert, the new lessees of Gayn­dah’s swim­ming pool, there was no short­age of pas­sion and it’s clear they have al­ready be­gun to pour their hearts into the role.

With two young chil­dren them­selves, Amy’s back­ground in teach­ing, a love for the wa­ter and a strong re­la­tion­ship with the com­mu­nity, I think Gayn­dah will be pleased to have this pair around the pool and guid­ing their young ones in the wa­ter.

Hav­ing a pub­lic swim­ming pool is so im­por­tant for more rea­sons than just cool­ing down in sum­mer.

Drown­ing is the most com­mon form of ac­ci­den­tal death in chil­dren aged un­der five in Aus­tralia, with al­most half of those deaths associated with pools.

The story I wrote about Amy and Ben’s new ven­ture is splashed on page 39, and the re­sponse it re­ceived on so­cial me­dia proves just how ex­cited the com­mu­nity is to see these two div­ing into some­thing new.
