Lions coin operated shower project opened in Grenfell | Photos

On Thursday September 12, the Grenfell Lions Club was on hand to cook the sausage sizzle at the RUOK Day at the Lions Park at the historic Railway Station.

Following the formalities on the day, Mayor Mark Liebich was called upon to officially open the recently completed coin operated shower block at the Station.

The coin operated shower is an extension to the already well utilised comfort station.

This facility has been funded by the Grenfell Lions Club Inc and the Weddin Shire Council and erected with the generous voluntary labour of the following; Kathryn Williams - Design Plans, Dug's Bobcat & Tipper Hire, Mitton QA Concrete & plant Hire, Tim Hazell, Jeremy D'Ombrain, Terry Hancock, Rod Harveyson, Andy Cooper Constructions, G Edwards Electrical, G Wood Plastering, Anthony Joyce Painting, Heath Mackinnon Tiling, Byrnes Plumbing Supplies and members of the Lions Club. The whole project was organised and supervised by Rod Walsh Plumbing, without whose enthusiasm and expertise would not have been as successful as it is.

Over the past two years funds raised by the Grenfell Lions Henry Lawson Festival Charity Queens May Suzuki and Tara Anderson have gone towards this outstanding project.

Although only open just over one week the facility has been used numerous times with quotes left in the donation box saying.

"Thank you, a great stop over in a very friendly clean town, lovely clean facilities - we will return," one visitor said.

"Thank you, a lovely spot, enjoyed our stay and the friendly locals."

"Thank you for another great stay, congrats on the shower, so well thought out," another comment said. "Many thanks, great town and wonderful facilities - shower just fantastic - will spread the word."

"Thank you to the Lions Club for providing a wonderful facility," another said. "We will pass the word on and hopefully increased visitors will support your town businesses."
