Coolup community celebrates new roof on hall

THE Coolup community celebrated the completion of the community hall roofing project on Sunday .

The hall was built in partnership with the Coolup Progress Association and the Federal Government.

The need for a roof over the Coolup Community Hall’s alfresco area was first identified in 2016 by the Coolup Progress Association.

In 2018, the association approached Canning MHR Andrew Hastie for assistance. Mr Hastie supported their application for a $15,000 Stronger Communities grant.

On Sunday, Mr Hastie joined the Coolup community for a long table lunch under the new roof to celebrate the completed project.

“I commend the Coolup Progress Association’s initiative to improve their local community,” he said.

“They identified the problem, secured partial funding and approached the Morrison government for matching support, which we were happy provide.

“This renovation will ensure the hall is fit for purpose for many years to come.”
