WANNEROO Showground will receive a facelift in Labor’s latest election funding pledge for the electorate.
State Opposition Leader Mark McGowan announced his party would provide $220,000 to upgrade facilities at the showground if elected on March 11. It would work with the City of Wanneroo to prioritise improvements necessary for the venue to continue hosting community activities.
Wanneroo Labor candidate Sabine Winton said $6000 would also be spent on lighting in the changerooms used by Wanneroo Cricket Club, Wanneroo Amateur Football Club and Wanneroo Junior Football Club.
Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts said she welcomed increased State Government commitment to improving community facilities.
“The City has a long-term association with the Wanneroo Agricultural Society at the showground so this would be a significant benefit for them,” she said.
“The funding would also supplement City funds devoted to the maintenance and care of the much loved Wanneroo Showground.”
Wanneroo MLA Paul Miles declined to comment on the showground funding but last week he and Deputy Premier Liza Harvey promised a re-elected Liberal Party would install a shade sail over the playground at Salitage Park in Pearsall.
