Lucindale Community Swimming Pool
Lucindale Community Pool Fundraising Update
As you’ve no doubt heard by now, a 25 metre, three lane pool will be built this year at the Lucindale Area School. Work is scheduled to start in late May with completion planned by December.
The development also includes a pool cover, solar heating, disability swing, lane ropes, detachable dive/starter blocks, shade structures, fencing and landscaping. The pool will be a community asset available for public use and will be overseen by a management committee made up of community members and key stakeholders.
The project is able to go ahead thanks to funding from the SA Department of Education and Lucindale Area School (sourced from cash and borrowings), along with generous donations from the Lucindale Lions Club and a number of other local clubs and individuals. Annual operational and maintenance costs for the Lucindale community pool will be funded by Lucindale Area School.
The total cost of the development is $1.2 million and there is a budget shortfall, so we are seeking to raise a minimum of $170,000 to cover this. In addition, a further $200,000 may be raised, which would reduce the school’s borrowings for the project.
Fundraising is well on its way, with close to $100,000 already committed. Signs showing fundraising progress will soon be up around town, so keep an eye out for them. Donors will be recognised in an appropriate way at the pool once the project is complete.
Tax deductible donations can be made to the community pool project thanks to a partnership between the Stand Like Stone Foundation and the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal.
