Royalties for Regions funding to provide Aflex inflatables in up to 90 WA regional pools

Royalties for Regions funding to provide Aflex inflatables in up to 90 WA regional pools
October 10, 2016

Up to 90 regional pools in Western Australia will be receiving an Aflex inflatable pool toy in time for the summer swimming season, thanks to an allocation of funding from the Western Australian Government's Royalties for Regions program.

State peak body LIWA Aquatics was allocated the Royalties for Regions funding with the express purpose of assisting regional aquatic facilities, and used it to fund the purchase of Aflex inflatable ‘Georges’ units to keep children more active and engaged at regional pools.

Commenting on the provision, LIWA Aquatics President Jeff Fondacaro explains “the Board of LIWA Aquatics is very proud to be associated with this project that will see increased physical activity and fun in regional pools across Western Australia. 

“The allocation of this funding along with annual grant of $32,000 to all regional pools over the last three years has seen pools rejuvenated, programs developed and new equipment on pool decks.

“It is a great win for our facilities in rural communities across the State.”

New Zealand made Aflex sealed inflatables are manufactured from custom-formulated PVC developed over the company’s more than 20 years’ experience supplying high quality aquatic inflatables across New Zealand, Australia and beyond.

Aflex General Manager, Karen Stratford commented “it is a great initiative by LIWA to allocate funding for an inflatable for each of these regional rural community pools.

“A special thanks to Tony (Head, LIWA Executive Officer) and the LIWA committee for choosing Aflex to be the supplier of an inflatable sealed toy – ‘George’ for each of the regional pools this summer.

“It is a great initiative by LIWA to allocate funding for an inflatable for each of these regional rural community pools.”

The Aflex ‘Georges’ are printed with LIWA Aquatics and Watch Around Water branding, and feature a new handle design with improved durability.

LIWA Aquatics are also providing an allocation of water test kits with the funding to ensure a higher standard of water analysis in Western Australia’s regional aquatic facilities.

The organisation is proud to have been the conduit for the provision of this equipment and together with Aflex hope that the facilities benefit from their new equipment.

Royalties for Regions underpins the Western Australia Government’s commitment to developing regional areas into strong and vibrant regional communities that are desirable places to live, work and invest.
