Mole Creek’s new comfort stop

Mole Creek's new comfort stop

AUGUST 2017

THE MOLE CREEK swimming pool committee will soon begin construction to upgrade the 50-year-old toilet block with the help of a TasWater Community Small Grant.  It’s a scheme that encourages local not-for-profit organisations to develop and implement short or long term ideas that change their communities for the better.

“The pool is all community run with community fundraisers to keep it going. The TasWater grant is much appreciated to help us do the renovations,” says Patsy Scott, President of the Mole Creek Swimming Pool Committee, who has been involved with the pool since its beginning.

A thriving summer hub successfully run by volunteers for over 30 years, the toilet block is a remnant of the original local primary school.

Committee is supported by a local plumber donating his time to install the new sinks, toilets and taps, and by a host of volunteers ready with brushes and rollers to help paint it after its renovations, ready for its re-opening for the coming summer season.

“It is wonderful to see so many people willing to do their bit to improve the Mole Creek pool facilities.  It is great to be a part of that,” adds TasWater’s Communications and Media Manager Andrew McGown, who awarded the grant.  For more information on the Community Small Grants Programme, visit taswater.com.au.
