Shire pools now open for sum­mer sea­son

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

Splash into sum­mer in one of the Ber­ri­gan Shire pools, now open for the sea­son.

En­try charges and sea­son tick­ets at Tocumwal and Fin­ley are un­changed from last year, and once again gen­er­ous spon­sor­ship means ac­cess to the Ber­ri­gan pool re­mains free.

The pool vol­un­teer com­mit­tees have put in a lot of ef­fort at Ber­ri­gan, Fin­ley and Tocumwal to be ready for the sea­son.

Coun­cil spent $30,000 com­pletely re­paint­ing the Tocumwal pool and resur­fac­ing the sur­rounds — the big­gest re­fur­bish­ment at the pool since it was built 20 years ago.

Mean­while, vol­un­teers at Ber- rigan War Me­mo­rial Swim­ming Pool con­structed a new shel­ter struc­ture dur­ing win­ter.

Mayor Bernard Curtin thanked the com­mit­tees for their work both over the win­ter and dur­ing the sea­son.

‘‘With­out the con­tri­bu­tion of our vol­un­teers, the coun­cil would be un­able to pro­vide such a high qual­ity pool ser­vice in each of our towns,’’ he said.

All pool com­mit­tees are seek­ing ad­di­tional vol­un­teers. Con­tact coun­cil on 5888 5100 for more in­for­ma­tion.

Pool open­ing times are avail­able in the ‘recre­ation’ sec­tion of coun­cil’s web­site, www.berri­g­an­shire.nsw.gov.au.
