Fun at Fitzroy Crossing

8 January 2018

Fitzroy Crossing’s December pool party was a huge success, with 123 kids loving the event arranged by the local police.

Fitzroy Crossing Swimming Pool was opened late and pool managers Trevor and Adele Caporn stayed on to help out with the pool party and ensure everyone had a great time. Even Santa made an appearance!

The second event of the year was also attended by 37 adults, who had just as much fun as the kids! The local IGA provided food for a barbecue, which was hugely popular, as was the disco, put on by Garnduwa.

Transport to and from the event was kindly provided by Marra Worra Worra and Garnduwa.

“This was the second event of the year and once again it was a great turn out and enjoyed by all who attended,” Senior Constable Matthew Hall said.

"We would like to say a big thanks to the agencies who made this event possible.”

The Remote Aboriginal Swimming Pools Project (RASP) is managed by Royal Life Saving WA and funded primarily through the Department of Communities with additional contribution made through BHP and the Telethon Kids Institute. It focuses on providing the remote communities of Burringurrah, Jigalong, Yandeyarra, Bidyadanga, Warmun and Fitzroy Crossing with recreational and educational swimming programs, to encourage safe aquatic participation.
