Croquet Club no longer in hot water

Life this winter will be a lot easier for the Busselton Croquet Club, who now has a steady flow of hot water thanks to Busselton Water.

The Club, which was without a working hot water system after a major refurbishment, received funding for a new hot water system under the Busselton Water Community Partnership Program

Club President John Boucher said that as a small club it had been difficult to secure funding for the ‘finishing touches’ after the much-needed refurbishment.

“After finally getting our power connected, we discovered we didn’t have access to hot water. So it was great that Busselton Water were able to come on board with support to make this happen for us,” said John.

“This is the first time we’ve received a grant from Busselton Water and this hot water system will have a lasting impact for our members and the broader community,” he added.

Busselton Water Managing Director Chris Elliott said that having easy and safe access to hot water is a necessity when it comes to hygiene and he is encouraging any other local community groups who need support to apply for funding.

“Safety is an important focus for Busselton Water, so to be able to support a local club in not only gaining access to hot water, but in improving their safety practices is very important to us,” said Mr Elliott.

“We’re now looking for community groups and local organisations looking to kick-start a water efficient project and need support to apply for the next round of funding.”

The Busselton Water Community Partnership Program seeks to support the local community, particularly groups and projects related to water quality and efficiency; environmental sustainability; education; innovation; and leadership.

There’s only two weeks left to apply for funding before applications close on Monday 3 June.
