Pool project shelved

The Robertson Pool project has been shelved for the time being.

The Committee is still waiting for funds to come back from the insurer after the shed used to house the facility collapsed back in 2018.

President Don Ferguson says government funding is also likely to be scarce given the drought, bushfires, floods and now COVID19.

The community has spent around 30 years fundraising for the project, in addition to countless hours chasing grants.

They're endeavouring to build a 25 metre, four lane heated swimming pool which will include facilities for people with a disability.
