Case Study 2 - Western Port. Contributing to the construction of a local aquatic centre


Hastings Pelican Park aquatic centre takes shape


Over the last year, the Company provided support valued at $210,000 to the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council to progress the Pelican Park Aquatic Centre development on the Hastings foreshore in Victoria, Australia.

According to Shire Mayor, David Renouf, the Pelican Park Aquatic Centre will be the "jewel in the crown" of the Pelican Park precinct, which will also include an all-abilities playground and skate park. President Western Port, Greg Waters, said the major project is a wonderful partnership between the Shire, state government, local business and community groups.

"The Company has provided approximately $150,000 worth of steel building materials for the aquatic centre and also made a cash donation of $60,000 towards the project. We are very pleased to be able to contribute to such an important community facility, which will benefit the Hastings community in a very real way for many years to come," he said.

"Many employees of the Western Port plant live in Hastings and the surrounding area and, along with the wider community, will benefit from our assistance in helping build this centre."

The new Pelican Park Aquatic Centre will include a 25-metre multi-purpose pool with disabled ramp, a leisure pool and adjoining toddler pool, large spa and separate steam room, a gymnasium area, multi-purpose rooms, a crèche and a café with internal and external seating.
