Coolup community hall upgrade complete

The Coolup community celebrated the completion of its community hall roofing project on Sunday.

The project was completed in partnership between the Coolup Progress Association and the federal government after the association received a $15,000 Stronger Communities grant.

Canning MP Andrew Hastie said the project was important as the community hall had hosted the district's celebrations and social life for many years.

"This renovation will ensure it is fit for purpose for many years to come," he said.

"I commend the Coolup Progress Association's initiative to improve their local community.

"They identified the problem, secured partial funding and approached the Morrison government for matching support, which we were happy provide."

Coolup Progress Association secretary Bev Alexander said she was thankful for the opportunity to improve her community.

"The Coolup Progress Association wish to convey a huge thank you and appreciation for the support of Member for Canning Andrew Hastie and the federal government's Stronger Communities Grant," she said.
