Three local community and sporting organisations are enjoying improved facilities thanks to the City’s Community Capital Requests Program.
Last year, Bayswater Bowling and Recreation Club, Casa Mia Playgroup and Bayswater Football Club were awarded funding from the City of Bayswater to make upgrades to help attract new members.
Bayswater Bowling and Recreation Club received $30,000 from the City to complete the $44,000 kitchen renovation.
The upgrades included the installation of new ani-slip flooring, cupboards, a washing basin, wall tiles, curtains and fresh paint.
The makeover has not only enhanced the look of the space, but has also improved the safety of the kitchen, and made it more appealing for people wanting to hire the space for private functions.
Casa Mia Playgroup received $8,800 to complete two projects, interior painting and the installation of a new wall, door and window.
The interior of the playgroup was given a fresh coat of paint to make the space brighter and easier to clean. A new wall, door and window were also installed to enclose the kitchen from the playgroup room. The upgrades have improved the safety of the facility by making it harder for children to access the kitchen.
Bayswater Football Club is enjoying a safer more secure premises thanks to upgrades made to the club’s storeroom.
The $6,300 storeroom refurbishment included new plastered and painted walls and the installation of vinyl flooring. The room can now be used to securely store merchandise and be utilised as an umpire’s room on game days.
