Premier Colin Barnett said the lawn bowls club needed more space to cope with high demand after a record number of new membership applications and needed upgrades to current facilities which are in disrepair.
‘Open seven days a week, the centre is home to the Morley-Noranda bowls club and is a hub of activity for children, families and seniors in the heart of Noranda,’ Mr Barnett said.
‘A new office, meeting space, storeroom, a bigger kitchen with a new dry store, a larger cool room, a new accessible toilet, landscaping and paving will all be part of the upgrades to the Noranda-Morley Recreation Centre.’
Morley MP Ian Britza said local community groups, particularly the lawn bowls club, provided a positive sense of community for many people in the electorate of Morley and deserved to be rewarded for their hard work.
Meanwhile, Lightning Park Recreation Centre will receive $400,000 to upgrade their clubrooms and facilities if a Liberal government is re-elected.
