Making waives for Wooroloo Bushfire recovery

Published on Thursday, 11 November 2021 at 1:06:00 PM

Shire of Mundaring and City of Swan residents whose properties were destroyed during the Wooroloo Bushfire will be offered free entry to the Shire's aquatic centres for the 21/22 season.

A motion passed unanimously by Council last night endorsed up to three books (30 entry passes) per person, in support of ongoing bushfire recovery efforts.

Fun as the weather warms up

Shire President, James Martin, said it was hoped that the offer would help provide some relief to impacted community members.

"We have an opportunity to deliver some fun moments to a group of people who have endured the worst," he said.

"Whilst we cannot bring back what was destroyed, we hope this can give some mental and physical relief."

"With the weather heating up, we hope eligible residents are able to take advantage of this offer."

Offer extended to City of Swan residents

Cr Martin said the Shire was proud to extend the offer to include impacted City of Swan residents.

"The fire did not recognise any Shire or City boundaries, nor should we do so now," he said.

"Unfortunately there are upgrades happening at Swan Active Midland and the only other available aquatic centre is in Beechboro, around 30 kilometres away.

Our facilities are located within a comfortable drive from Gidgegannup and we welcome all visitors to our Shire with open arms."

Eligible Wooroloo residents will be contacted by Shire staff regarding the pick-up or delivery of their entry books for either Bilgoman Aquatic Centre in Darlington or the Mt Helena Aquatic Centre.
