Bakers Hill residents will see improved facilities at the Recreation Centre thanks to a $90,000 grant from the Morrison Liberal Government.
Barbecues, a nature playground and new shade structures will be installed as a result of the grant from the Community Development Grants Programme.
Federal Member for Pearce, Christian Porter, who secured the funding, said this was an important project for Bakers Hill which will benefit the whole community.
“The Morrison Liberal Government is delivering local investment that our communities expect and deserve,” Mr Porter said.
“These projects are really important for local communities who make good use of these facilities.
“The Bakers Hill Recreation Centre is well utilised by the community, so it’s important that we keep it up to date and meeting the needs of the local community and visitors to the town.
“It’s great to be able to deliver this funding which the community of Bakers Hill has been calling out for.”
Shire of Northam President, Cr Chris Antonio, welcomed the funding, saying the realisation of the Rec Centre upgrades was exciting for the wider Bakers Hill community.
“Bakers Hill is a thriving small community with a clear future vision that has been identified in the Bakers Hill Community Plan,” Cr Antonio said.
“This funding will provide an exciting opportunity for the community to work towards achieving that vision.”
