AFTER receiving funding of $66,000 from the Victorian Government to upgrade the facilities at the Balmoral Swimming Pool, the Balmoral community is now hoping to raise additional funds.
Southern Grampians Shire is providing $24,000 towards the project and the Balmoral community and swimming pool committee are hoping to raise $20,000 over the next 12 to 18 months.
The project will involve a refit and reconfiguration of the change rooms to include a first aid room, kiosk and storage area.
The main entry will be redesigned and new accessible pool ramp and car spaces will be built.
On Sunday there will be a family fun day and raffle draw at the Balmoral pool.
Southern Grampians FReeZA youth program have generously funded the amusements for the family dun day.
Raffle winners will be announced at 5pm.
Tickets for the raffle are available on the day and at businesses throughout Balmoral.
