The YMCA NSW (Y NSW) is thrilled to have been appointed by Bellingen Shire Council to manage the Bellingen and Dorrigo Swim Centres for another 5 years as the centres gear up to reopen at the end of the month.
Y NSW Cluster Manager Melissa Morgan said the Y was thrilled to continue its longstanding partnership with the Council.
“Although it’s been a challenging year with our sites impacted by the bushfires and the ongoing impact of the pandemic on recreation facility operations, we are reopening stronger than ever at Bellingen and Dorrigo on Saturday, September 26 with an increased focus on creating events and programs that bring families together at the pool,” she said.
“The Y has been a core part of the Coffs Coast community since 2013 and are looking forward to some exciting upgrades and changes for the community including an upgrade of the kiosk at Bellingen. We’re also exploring introducing fitness classes on the grassed area at Dorrigo to further increase the accessibility of wellness to the community.”
Bellingen Shire Council Mayor, Cr Dominic King said the partnership was delivering for the community.
“This has been a great partnership with the YMCA and community feedback has been very positive around the job they do managing our pools, which prove year after year to be one of our Shire’s most popular community facilities,” he said.
Bellingen Swim Centre and Dorrigo Swim Centre offer aquatics activities and swimming lessons for children and adults of all abilities. Both pools will reopen for the Season on Saturday, September 26. For information about the centre, membership and programs visit www.ymcansw.org.au.
