Luke calls for Woolgoolga centre
THE need for a multi-purpose community centre in Woolgoolga has been raised in Federal Parliament.
Cowper MP Luke Hartsuyker told the House of Representatives such a facility was needed to meet the increased needs of the Northern Beaches community.
“Currently the area is lacking sporting and cultural facilities in which young people can participate in a range of activities,” Mr Hartsuyker said.
“A Northern Beaches multi-purpose community facility committee has been formed and comprises strong representation from the community and sporting groups.
“These include the youth club, the residents’ association, the chamber of commerce, the Indian Temple Committee, the Lions and Rotary clubs, the Woolgoolga High School P and C, the Woolgoolga Netball Association, soccer clubs and the RSL Club.
“The committee proposes to construct an indoor community and sporting facility, which would include basketball courts, a stage, a kitchen and multi-purpose rooms. The centre would be a cultural venue for the arts and would provide a place to host community events.
“It is important that all three levels of government support a multi-purpose facility in Woolgoolga. I acknowledge the professionalism of the committee and call on the Federal Government to join the Coalition in supporting this project.”
