Club Projects

 

Wangi Lions undertakes many local community projects. These include the following:‚Äč 

Wangi School Outdoor Learning Area 

Built in 2015, this project was a collaborative effort between Wangi Lions, Jane Smith ( a local mosaic artist) and the local school and the students. It was funded in the main by the club and constructed by club members. The mosaic designs were created by Jane Smith who supervised club volunteers and school children in the massive job of making the mosaic.

 

Centenary Exercise Equipment

In 2015, the Club put a proposal to Lake Macquarie City Council to build exercise equipment along the foreshore of the lake between Wangi Workers Club and Wangi RSL. After many months of planning, public consultation by Council and fundraising, the club completed the project in February 2018 with funds received by:

  • Federal Government - Stronger Communities Grant of $20,000
  • NSW Government - Community Building Program Grant of $25,000
  • LMCC Developer Contributions of $13,000.

There are 4 exercise stations spaced along the concrete pathway between the two clubs allowing easy access for the many people who walk along the pathway. The exercise equipment is designed for flexibility and strength for people in an older age group. A public opening was held in March 2018, attended by Joel Fitzgibbon (Federal member), Greg Piper (State member) and Kay Fraser (LMCC Mayor). Photos below show some of the stations at various stages of completion and the opening event.
