Waroona Business After Hours

Guests were delighted by the warm and inviting atmosphere, delectable finger food and spectacular grazing table at the Peel CCI Business After Hours event, hosted by the Shire of Waroona on Wednesday 20 October.

Hon Andrew Hastie MP was in attendance and pleased to announce the Federal Governments $900,000 contribution towards the Waroona Revitalisation Plan and Community Precinct through the Building Better Regions Fund.

Andrew McKerrel, General Manager of Peel Chamber of Commerce & Industry Inc. provided business and industry insight for the region and Bronwyn Chompff from the Waroona Business Support Group took the opportunity to launch the Waroona Customer Experience Charter, soon to be rolled out to support local business in the region.

Shire President Mike Walmsley said there was a lot to celebrate, “Following two years of planning, preparing, lobbying and securing funding to create a new community precinct and develop a ‘plan’ to refresh the town center, we are ready to take the next steps with development set to commence around April next year”.

The town center revitalisation, accompanied by local events, artwork and natural amenity all contribute towards supporting business and the local economy.

[11/11/21]   Drakesbrook Weir Barbeque Facilities
November 2021

In 2020/21, faced with obsolete and unrepairable gas barbecues, the Shire of Waroona made the decision to apply to Western Power to have electricity connected to the recreation area of the Drakesbrook Weir. The connection to power will allow not only the installation of modern electric barbecues but will also open up other opportunities such as events, lighting and parks reticulation.

Due to circumstances beyond the Shire’s control the installation of the new power, which is Western Power’s responsibility, faced a number of delays however Western Power has indicated that works have been scheduled and should be complete by the end of January 2022.

It is unfortunate that barbeque facilities won’t be available for the Christmas and New Year period however the Shire will endeavour to have the barbeques set up and ready for when Western Power commissions the power connection.

They can both be proud of their local government commitment and wish them well in their retirement from council”.

Cr Walmsley went on to add that he was delighted with new Councillors Pisconeri and Woodbury and thought through their respective community involvement, would be very complimentary to the existing council. “I thank them both sincerely for stepping up for this role and know they will both bring great representation of their community to council”.
