The Member for Lingiari, Warren Snowdon MP, today announced that a Shorten Labor Government will invest $600,000 in much-needed upgrades to the Katherine Aquatic Centre.
The Katherine Aquatic Centre is a fabulous facility, and with this investment from a Federal Labor Government the Katherine Town Council will be able to complete the shade over the pool and enhance BBQ and shade facilities.
These improvements will ensure pool users have a safe, family friendly environment to enjoy. This announcement complements Federal Labor’s plans for a new, national SwimSmart program to make sure Australian children grow up with the water safety skills they need to keep them safe. Labor’s plan will mean more swimming lessons for primary school students, catch-up lessons for those that need it and more help with the cost of transport and pool entry fees.
In a region where it is unsafe to swim in any rivers and waterholes residents seek relaxation, recreation and SwimSmart Education at the pool.
A Federal Labor Government will deliver the $600,000 investment in accordance with the town of Katherine’s Masterplan for the Sports Grounds.
