Wauchope Lions upgrade Showground canteen | photos

Wauchope Lions have an upgraded canteen at the Showground, which is good news for the club and hungry customers.

The Lions club applied for a community grant last year, which they received in May 2016, to the tune of $25,000.

They have used the money to upgrade their facilities at the Wauchope Showground.

Improvements include 

  • new roller doors for better security
  • a new kitchen bench
  • new internals walls, so there’s no longer just a tin wall, correct kitchen grade flooring
  • a new industrial range hood

Secretary Jim Munro says the upgrade has solved a lot of problems for them.

“The canteen is now more secure and vermin-proof,” he said.

Jim, along with three other members, Bruce Cant, Gordon Douglas and Jim Calleja, were part of the committee to improve the amenities.

Visiting the canteen, Member for Oxley Melinda Pavey was very impressed.

“This is just so good. It’s fantastic,” she said.

And she praised the amazing work of those who give their time for nothing.

“A lot of volunteer labour went into improving the facilities, and it means a healthier and safer working environment for the Lions, not just once a year when the Show comes around, but all year,” she said.

The improved facilities also mean the Lions canteen will become a great money maker for the community.
