    Federal Member for Grey, Rowan Ramsey opened the pool and surrounds and said, “ The pool presents a lovely entrance to the town from Port Augusta and many young families told me how much they have been using it already.”

    The refurbishment was jointly funded by Federal, State and Local Governments.

    Federal Member for Grey Rowan Ramsey said works included major pool renovations including installing new tiles, a one-metre diving springboard and starting blocks.

    “Renewing and building infrastructure in country towns like Quorn is vital to our economic health,” he said.

    “The regional areas provide the best opportunities for the State to re-energise itself economically, it is important we build the best possible services to attract people to live in our towns.

    “Quorn’s pool redevelopment including filters, plant, fencing, sheds, toddler’s pool, disabled access and signage all add to the amenity of the town.”

    Flinders Ranges Council Deputy Mayor Peter Slattery, who could not be present on the day said “The pool is well used by the community, not only for social and recreational swimming but for water aerobics and fitness activities, VacSwim lessons, Quorn Area School swimming programs and is home to the Quorn Amateur Swimming Club”.
