Young families grab their togs to make historic splash in Toodyay’s long-awaited new pool
There was plenty for young families to celebrate in the wading pool (above) on the first day of swimming last month at Toodyay’s new Aquatic Centre near the town’s high school. The pool complex and kiosk is part of Toodyay’s new $14 million sport and recreation centre which the Shire of Toodyay will officially open at a public ceremony starting at 10.30am on Saturday November 21. The event will feature visiting sports stars, VIP guest speakers, an official ribbon cutting ceremony and plaque unveiling, a Toodyay Locals Care sausage sizzle to raise funds for local charity and ice cream and coffee vans.

There’ll be plenty of this in the warm months ahead.
