DELIVERING AN UPGRADED CLUBHOUSE FOR JAN JUC
Lifesavers will get the facilities they need to keep their community safe with a re-elected Andrews Labor Government to complete the building of the Jan Juc Surf Life Saving clubhouse.
Only Labor will make sure our lifesavers have the modern facilities they need, investing an additional $600,000 towards the construction of the clubhouse.
The Andrews Labor Government delivered $2 million toward the $6.5 million project in 2017.
This additional funding will ensure that the project is delivered in full with no compromises. More than 1000 members used the original clubhouse, which was 50 years old.
With around 300 ‘nippers’ at Jan Juc, the current clubhouse wasn’t big enough to hold them and their parents for training on surf safety, first aid and rescue techniques. The clubhouse also struggled to host events and functions.
The new clubhouse will enable the lifesaving club to expand their training and education programs and provide more room for local community groups to host functions and meetings.
In addition to community meeting spaces and a function room the clubhouse will also feature short-term accommodation for education and training camps as well as a café open to the public.
