A group of six Moorabool residents and 2 councillors have banded together to help investigate the possibility of introducing an indoor pool for Bacchus Marsh.
Tina Serilis, David Stewart, Michael Belcher, Patrick Blandthorn, Shane Jenkins and Shayne Ward are all doing their research to help decide whether an indoor pool would be a good or a bad idea for our local community.
According to the Melton/Moorabool Express Telegraph a study was commissioned last year which showed there was a demand for an indoor swimming facility, and the local Bacchus Marsh Rotary Club have even been trying to raise funds for an aquatic centre since 2007! So far they have raised $20,000 however that falls a little short of the estimated cost of the project which is believed to be closer to $6 million.
I’m all for having a local indoor pool in Bacchus Marsh but we’ll have to wait and see what is recommended to the council.
Do you want Bacchus Marsh to have an indoor pool facility?
