So where is Berrigan?
Berrigan is a small town, located in the Southern Riverina region of New South Wales, Australia, 30kms north of the Murray River. Melbourne is three hours to the south and Sydney is seven hours to the north east.
It is the home to the offices of the Berrigan Shire Council and close to the Murray River communities of Barooga, Finley, Tocumwal, and Mulwala, with Jerilderie to the north.
Both Albury and Shepparton are just over an hour away, and to Wagga Wagga takes two hours.
Free entry to Berrigan War Memorial Swimming Pool next season
Dear Residents of Berrigan & Surrounding Area,
With many new residents to our town, there may be a misconception that the entry to the Berrigan War Memorial Pool is free.
That is not the case, the pool entry is subsidised by the community of Berrigan.
How this subsidised entry works.
Instead of charging entry fees each year we ask our very generous community to donate to our pool running costs.
If donations reach what is expected would be received through our gate takings we can once again implement the subsidised system.
If not enough donation funds are collected, we will return to the fee structure in line with the other shire pools
Our wonderful community has paid UPFRONT for EVERYONE to swim for approximately 12 years and we are so grateful for your amazing generosity and community spirit.
We understand our Shire pools take a lot of funding to operate and appreciate the funding contribution from Berrigan Shire which covers a large portion of the operating costs.
We are a small Committee who watch our budget very carefully and also fundraise to implement improvements to our facility.
We would be appreciative of any donation to keep subsidised entry going for our community.
Donations can be made via EFT/Cheque to BERRIGAN WAR MEMORIAL POOL BSB 633-000 ACCOUNT NUMBER 162 961 981 – Reference Your Name
OR please send a cheque – C/- The Treasurer, PO Box 112, BERRIGAN NSW 2712
Sincerely yours, the Committee of the BERRIGAN WAR MEMORIAL SWIMMING POOL
